PALAIS DE CHAILLOT
The Palais de Chaillot in Paris is located in the sixteenth arrondissement, on the Place du Trocadéro, up the hill of Chaillot. It was built for the Universal Exhibition of 1937 by the architect Léon Azéma, Jacques Carlu, and Louis-Hippolyte Boileau, rather than the square of the old Trocadero Palace.
The Palais de Chaillot consists of two wings folded from which you can see the Eiffel Tower. The building houses several museums among which is the Navy Museum, the Museum of Man, the Museum of French Monuments and the Museum of Cinema Henri Langlois, Cinémathèque Française.
In the palace the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on December 10, 1948.
