Exhibition: Clemenceau, the Tiger and Asia
Georges Clemenceau, also known as "the Tiger", is considered as a major politician in French national memory. Far from being only a military leader and renowned statesman, he was also an art collector, and was particularly fond of Asia, its religions and civilisations. The exhibition of the musée Guimet explores this aspect of his personality, by presenting photographs, objects and documents from his private collection.
Exhibtion: "Clemenceau, the Tiger and Asia", from March 12th to June 16th, 2014.
Open every day except Tuesday, from 10am to 6pm.
Full rate: €9.50 / Concession: €7.
