The Hôtel de la Marine opens its doors to us free of charge on April 6 and 7, 2024 for some very special visits... On the occasion of the Journées des Métiers d'Art, meet the craftsmen who work to preserve the monument.

Beneath the gilding that adorns the rooms of theHôtel de la Marine lies a long and rich history... But also a wealth of expertise! To maintain and preserve this monument, many craftsmen are hard at work. Find out more about these people and their skills at JEMA 2024.

JEMA stands for Journées européennes des Métiers d'Art, an annual event that gives us the opportunity to learn more about the art of craftsmanship. These particular crafts require unique and exceptional knowledge and skills. Cabinet-makers, glass-blowers, milliners, fountains, stone carvers, gilders, cutlers, painters, lace-makers, calligraphers... More than 280 professions are grouped under this honorary title.

During the Journées des Métiers d'Art, the general public can meet these craftsmen, chat with them, watch a demonstration... They can also visit monuments, workshops, museums and heritage sites. The kind of event we love!

As you can imagine, theHôtel de la Marine will be taking part in JEMA 2024 on April 6 and 7. For the occasion, the monument is offering free events for all visitors. Book your ticket now.

On the program for JEMA 2024 at the Hôtel de la Marine:

  • Come and discover stucco and staff, two materials that can be used to create highly sophisticated moldings and decorations. As part of its 3rd participation in the Journées européennes des Métiers d'art, the Hôtel de la Marine invites you to an exceptional meeting with a staff craftsman from the Del Boca workshop, who contributed to the restoration of the 18th-century apartments now open to the public.

It's sure to be a weekend of discoveries.
