Guided tour and free visit

Groups can visit the museum with their own lecturers. In this case, they will only have to pay the entrance fee, but it’s mandatory to inform the museum and ask for a « right to talk ».
The museum offers visits in French but also in English on request, and as part of its scheduled guided tours.



Reservation is free but obligatory for a guided tour (only for groups), in order to manage the visitors flows.
