The Bourse de Commerce does not claim to offer an objective overview of contemporary art. Instead, it is an opportunity for visitors to discover and experience a collection first-hand.
The Bourse de Commerce welcomes specialists and novices. Withhold your opinion and expectations, you may either love or hate what you see, but prepare to be either captivated or challenged.
You can visit the exhibitions at your own pace, alone or with a tour guide, take in a screening or a conference, a performance or a concert.
Admire the sheer beauty of the venue, the sight of the Rotunda, and the magnificent alliance of contemporary glass and concrete architecture, coupled with the vast 19th-century decors. This unique building, fully restored and renovated, offers a fascinating dialogue between heritage and contemporary art.
Open and easy
The Bourse de Commerce is open every day except Tuesdays, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Because you have more time at the weekend, the Bourse de Commerce stays open later, until 9 p.m. on Fridays and the first Saturday of the month.
In order to offer the public comfortable and safe visiting conditions, the Bourse de Commerce - Pinault Collection recommends to make advance bookings with a set time. Tickets can be reserved online or at the Information-Ticket Desk, located just opposite the Bourse de Commerce entrance, but there is no guarantee of availability, should all the time slots be taken. Therefore, we strongly recommend you purchase your ticket online before your visit.
Welcoming and comfortable
Once you have your ticket, you can enter the Bourse de Commerce. After the security check, you enter the Salon, on the ground floor. This comfortable space, furnished by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, invites you to slow down. It is a space where you can take the time to discover a hanging of some works from the collection and the activities on offer. You can wait here for friends, consult a range of catalogues, find information about tours, or just take a break.
Over the course of your visit, you will come across seating areas with benches and chairs, where you can take a break, and on the third floor, the Petit Salon offers stunning views of the Bourse de Commerce’s central Rotunda, the canopy of Les Halles and the rooftops of Paris.
