What to expect

To Great Men, the Grateful Nation
The inscription has adorned the front of the Pantheon since the French Revolution, a majestic neoclassical monument adorned with painted and sculpted decorations from the 19th century, proudly standing at the heart of the Latin Quarter. Explore its impressive nave, delve into its crypt, and pause in front of the great figures of the nation: Voltaire and Rousseau, as well as Victor Hugo and Emile Zola, are among the most renowned. Some may be unfamiliar to you, but all the figures enshrined within reflect the sensibilities of their time. Lastly, experience the wonderful reconstruction of the 1851 Foucault's Pendulum, which will captivate both young and old alike.

Various visitor assistance devices, including explanatory documents, wheelchair-accessible digital kiosks, digital biographical plaques, and audio guides for rent, are available to them.

Temporary Exhibitions at the Panthéon in Paris

"We Could be Heroes" by Raphaël Barontin: from October 19, 2023, to February 11, 2024.

The Panthéon will soon host an exceptional exhibition titled "We Could be Heroes" by artist Raphaël Barontini, organized by the Centre des Monuments Nationaux. This exhibition, part of the "one artist, one monument" program, offers the artist carte blanche, promising a unique artistic experience at the heart of this iconic monument.


A Bit of History

In 1744, King Louis XV vowed to dedicate a prestigious building to Geneviève, the patron saint of Paris, a project entrusted to the architect Soufflot. In 1791, the monument was transformed into the National Panthéon, and Victor Hugo was buried there in 1885. Voltaire, Emile Zola, and Marie Curie would follow. From a church to a Republican Temple, the Panthéon has always remained a symbol, a sanctuary dedicated to great men.

Come and See the Earth Turn!

In the nave of the Panthéon, you'll find a replica of the Foucault Pendulum. In 1851, Foucault aimed to popularize science and demonstrate to the general public the Galilean principle that the Earth rotates on its axis and around the sun. The principle is simple: suspend a 40-kilogram sphere at the end of a 67-meter long piano wire and set it swinging on a fixed axis. You'll discover that with each swing, the pendulum doesn't return to its original position but slightly to the left. The pendulum is fixed; it's the Earth that is turning!

Did You Know?

Marie Curie, Nobel Prize winner in Chemistry for her work on polonium and radium, was interred in the Panthéon in 1995. To avoid radiation exposure, her coffin is lined with multiple layers of lead. Her body is exceptionally well-preserved due to the radiation she was exposed to during her lifetime.

A french history lessen not just for the french……

A magnificent building with a history to match. Being able to visit the tombs of such luminaries as Marie Curie and Victor Hugo was a humbling experience. Seeing Foucault’s pendulum was interesting and one in the eye for flat earthers!! All in all it was worth a visit.

Stately building, interesting history, crossing religious and secular; the contrast between the powerful contemporary slavery exhibition and the 19th-century romantic background of republican France was telling.
