We missed it a lot…. The Musée Art Ludique, originally set at the Cité de la Mode et du Design and that closed in 2017 that has upset a lot of people, will finally reopen in Paris. And not anywhere since it’s the gare Saint-Lazare that will house this original museum in an area covering 1300sqm, just behind the big clock. Said to reopen in 2021!
We loved the Justice League, DC Comics and Blue Sky’s Studio exhibitions that met an incredible success that each brought hundreds of thousands of visitors. We must say the idea of a museum devoted to “creative industries” was bold but a winning bet for founder Jean-Jacques Launier.
In this Musée Art Ludique 2021, the big novelty will be the permanent and evolutive collection around “the history of art, from the 19th century, with the great illustrators and cartoonists, to the birth of comics in Europe and the United-States, mangas in Japan and all the way to the animation”. In the meantime, and all year long, “introduction workshops” and “temporary exhibitions devoted to a studio, an artist or a special topic” are planned as well.
To make us wait, SNCF Gare & Connexion has released a map of the Musée Art Ludique in the Saint-Lazare railway station. It’s definitely enjoying the affluence of the station as it welcomes over 100 million travelers a year.
A lovely rebirth we can’t wait to discover!
