Palais des Évêques museum


The renovation of the Palais des Évêques museum began with a complete museographic study in order to restore consistency to the visit route and to rethink the identity of the place.

The resulting project is a new vision, not only of the themes addressed in the six exhibition halls and their galleries but a living journey with changing styles and which is punctuated by numerous mediations (projections and models; interactive games; manipulations, etc.)

The principle of exhibiting remarkable collections has also been adopted and the display cases have been reinvented for the project.

The entire route resumed including a new ticket office, its shop and the outdoor route that leads to Notre Dame de la Sède Cathedral.
