Departement Stores

Cité de l’architecture & du patrimoine and the Decorative Arts Museum are working together to successively present two exhibitions devoted to department stores. The aim of this partnership is to exhibit in two parts the history of these new temples of consumption from their appearance in the mid-19th century to the present day.
