2. The second tour analyzes the history of the construction and the architectural style of the Palais des Nations, while also looking at some of the fine artwork and donations on the display in the Palais des Nations. Currently available in French and German.

3. The third offer is a combination of our regular tour of the Palais des Nations preceded or followed by a guided tour of the Museum of the League of Nations, which is situated in the library of the Palais des Nations. Currently unavailable.

The thematic tours last for one and a half hours.
