The Beauvoisine Project in Rouen

06/28/2022 09:30 AM

The Natural History Museum and the Rouen Museum of Antiquities are involved in a vast project of architectural and museographic renovation.
The renovation of the buildings is in fact an opportunity to rethink the future permanent tour as well as complementary reception and mediation functions in a unique and innovative facility of the Réunion des Musées Métropolitains.

The opening is scheduled for 2028.
