There are more and more places reopening following the Covid lockdown… The Château d’Ecouen – National Museum of the Renaissance – set in Ecouen, Val d’Oise, is reopening from May 19, 2021. Good news for all Renaissance art lovers, and the occasion to enjoy a nice walk as warmer days are coming.
Yet, as for health guidelines to comply with, facemask-wearing is compulsory, so are social distancing rules. Hand-sanitizer is provided to visitors. Note a gauge has also been instated to avoid mixing too many visitors and booking is highly recommended.
Built in the 16th century for Anne de Montmorency, Château d’Ecouen now houses the National Museum of the Renaissance which works mostly come from the Musée de Cluny set in Paris 5th arrondissement. Among masterpieces, the splendid tapestry by David and Bethsabée, and even one of the very first copies of the famous “The Last Supper” by Leonardo da Vinci, ordered from 1506 in Milan to Marco d’Oggiono.
