Created during the French Revolution, the National Archives collect, protect and highlight the State's central archives. About 300 linear kilometers of archives, from the 7th century to nowadays are saved here.

The Pierrefitte-sur-Seine facilities - designed by architect Massimiliano Fuksas - are devoted to archives after the French Revolution, and houses 180 linear kilometers of public and private archives accessible in a reading room.
