The Château d'Auvers-sur-Oise welcomes you to Nuit des Musées 2024 on Saturday, May 18, 2024, for the 20th edition of this European event. The Château d'Auvers, located in the Val-d'Oise region of France, nestled in the quintessential village of Auvers-sur-Oise, is a cultural gem not to be missed by lovers of art and history. Renowned for having been a source of inspiration for famous artists such as Vincent van Gogh, this historic residence invites us to plunge into the world of Impressionism and the Belle Époque.

The Château d'Auvers-sur-Oise, built at the end of the 17th century, has been transformed through the ages. Originally conceived as a prestigious residence for an Italian banker, it then lived several lives, welcoming aristocrats and artists, before becoming the dynamic museum we know today. Its renovation and conversion into a cultural space in the early 90s highlighted its elegant architecture and formal gardens, while providing an exceptional setting for the dissemination of art and culture.

The Château d'Auvers offers a unique immersive experience through its flagship exhibition "Journey to the Time of the Impressionists". Visitors can immerse themselves in the Impressionist era thanks to avant-garde multimedia devices. Through projections and audiovisual installations, visitors discover the lives of the painters who left their mark on this period, such as Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro and Vincent van Gogh, who painted some of his most famous works during the last months of his life in Auvers-sur-Oise.

The Château d'Auvers-sur-Oise is also a thriving cultural hub. In addition to its permanent exhibition, the château regularly hosts temporary exhibitions and events of all kinds. This makes it a meeting place not only for art enthusiasts, but also for families in search of enriching cultural activities.

The château's gardens, restored in the spirit of French gardens, are an invitation to stroll and contemplate. A stroll through the gardens not only allows you to enjoy a relaxing natural setting, but also to admire the façade of the château, with its ornamentation and typical 17th-century architecture. It's an invitation to daydream, just as the Impressionist painters found in these landscapes an inexhaustible source of inspiration.
