Was built in 1805 as a huge government office which it remains today.Manages 6 National Academies which run 1000 foundations and museums and libraries.Finest looking office I've ever seen with imposing wings and a grand coupole in the middle. Your photos do it justice.It's next door to Hotel de Monnaies (the Mint), which is itself well worth a visit to see the collections. The Institu is on the edge of the Latin Quarter so worth a look en route.
