Paris pays tribute to the man behind the Eiffel Tower. The makings of the "La Tour de 300 metres", from the drawing plans to the pictures of the construction of the infamous structure are displayed in the first major exhibition dedicated to the iron genius.
The public will also be able to take a peek of the different interpretations of the tower from various artists, as well as Eiffel's iron works from around the globe. A part of his private life is also unfolded for the viewers to see.
