Musée d'art et d'histoire

A museum that is open to the world

The Museum is a place where people can enjoy beauty and pause to reflect: it combines visual pleasure with a desire to gain a deeper knowledge of the world around us. This is why it adopts a multidisciplinary approach to its core activities: managing the collections, designing exhibitions, and outreach. Driven by its commitment to make the most of its heritage, the MahN also prompts visitors to question their own relationships with culture, ideas and the objects that surround them.

The MahN is committed to serving the general public, and it aims to be accessible to everyone. This is why cultural outreach is a key feature, with guided tours, workshops for adults and children, concerts and many other unique events. The MahN also develops and fosters partnerships with figures in the cultural world and scientific institutions – in the local region and beyond – to shed new light on its activities and integrate new issues into its scope.
