The renovation project of the Musée National de la Marine, which has been housed in the Palais de Chaillot since 1943 and is the oldest maritime museum in the world, will be divided into different galleries that have been designed to meet the expectations of different audiences:
- The tour will begin with a “landmarks” area, both a maritime interpretation centre and an immersive space, which will give visitors the historical, geographical and aesthetic keys to the sea.
- Three “semi-permanent” spaces renewed every three to five years on the most emblematic themes of our history and our future.
- Object” spaces, called “studios”, which will showcase the most beautiful works from the museum’s collections.
- A new space that will allow the organisation of two temporary exhibitions per year on subjects more in line with current events.
- Spaces for exchanges and meetings: a documentary resource centre, a 200-seat auditorium, work spaces, a shop and a restaurant open to all.
