What awaits you on site


Since the opening of the Philharmonie in January 2015, the Cité de la Musique has formed a new organisation with it, called the Cité de la Musique-Philharmonie de Paris. This exceptional architectural complex, designed by two great names in architecture – Christian de Portzamparc and Jean Nouvel – houses several concert halls, a museum, a media library and numerous educational areas and is a unique cultural centre in the world that promotes the appropriation of music by all audiences with its permanent ensembles, guest artists and its innovative art project.

The museum in the Cité de la Musique

With 8,000 objects, 1,000 of which are on display, the museum shows a diverse spectrum of evidence of musical life in the West since the 15th century. The most important musical cultures in the world are also presented here.
