Cultival gives you exclusive access to the headquarters of one of the most prestigious international organizations: UNESCO.

Located in the 7th arrondissement of Paris, close to the Champ de Mars and the Eiffel Tower, UNESCO House has been home to the headquarters of this specialized agency of the United Nations (UN) since 1958. A treasure of modern architecture, it is the result of a collaboration among several emblematic figures of the twentieth century, including the three architects: Bernard Zehrfuss, Marcel Breuer and Luigi Nervi.

This guided tour, which focuses on the actions and impact of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, will allow you to discover its operation as well as its values. Accompanied by your guide, you will pass through the institution's iconic spaces, and will discover the exceptional works of art housed in UNESCO House: from Miró to Picasso, from Giacometti to Calder, as well as the Tolerance Square or the Japanese Garden…a unique and unexpected collection unfolds along the way.

Whether you are interested in UNESCO's missions, passionate about art and architecture, or simply want to know how this famous organization works, this unusual guided tour in the heart of Paris will arouse your curiosity, and inspire you.
