Covid health protocol – Practical information

This page is intended to keep you informed of the measures in force in our museum and our adjoining rooms. We try to update it as often as possible in order to offer you up-to-date information and to reassure you.

Our goal at the heart of this difficult crisis for all is to continue to keep the museum alive while ensuring your safety. We know that this can cause frustration for you dear visitors but these measures are essential so that when at last everything is back to order, we all find ourselves in good health and happy to see each other again.

During this quieter time for us, we don’t stop working. We are continuing to develop the museum, collect collector’s items, write articles, run our networks, prepare for next season’s events and there will be some! Our online store will also be redesigned and we will improve your visitor experience. Be patient, let us remain optimistic and courageous. Let us take the example of those who have gone before us and have lived through times how much more difficult …

During this calm period, take advantage of lower attendance to visit the museum in complete safety and take the time to stroll
