MUSEUM OF IMAGES
600 m² of exhibition space, conferences, workshops, meetings, a programme for young people... But above all a unique collection where popular imagery meets contemporary art. A cultural and tourist site of unsuspected richness to be discovered or rediscovered without further delay!
Push open the doors of the Musée de l'Image and you will be surprised by the abundance and diversity of its collections. Since its creation in 2003, the Museum has housed one of the largest collections of popular printed images in France and abroad: a collection of more than 110,000 images which constitutes a window on the fascinating world of old and contemporary images and their creators and offers an original look at our society.
By confronting popular images with other works –contemporary photographs, paintings, but also musical, literary and theatrical works, the Museum gave itself the goal of questioning the connections –humorous, sentimental, sometimes improbable, that exist between the images of yesterday and today. The works on display are presented with explanatory texts for everyone's understanding. The permanent exhibition is designed as an open book that will make you want to turn the pages and look at the images.
By offering inventive and varied exhibitions throughout the year, the Musée de l'Image has become not only a reference point for popular imagery but also for the way in which these historical collections can be questioned and understood.
For conservation reasons, the images on display are regularly changed, allowing visitors to discover new works each time they visit!
