Built at the beginning of the eighteenth century by Louise Françoise de Bourbon, the seat of the National Assembly offers a visit to the historic home of French legislation.
Opening Hours: Visits to the Palaisde Bourbon are only possible on days when the Assembly isn’t meeting. It’s possible to attend an Assembly session in the visitors’ section. In both cases it’s necessary to obtain a pass from a member of the National Assembly (yeah, that means you need to be able to email in French). The full list of members is available on line.
Tickets: Free entrance.
Info and Services: Visitors must bring official ID for entry. The public can visit Le Kiosque (entrance on Rue Aristide Briand, closed August), for books and souvenirs of the French Parliament.
