Paris Musée Guimet takes part in European Heritage Days 2020 on September 19 and 20, 2020 and opens the Hôtel Heidelbach, a wonderful hotel particulier housing a traditional tea pavilion in a secret garden. Caution, by registration only!

The Musée Guimet is not done revealing you its secrets. On the occasion of the 37thedition of European Heritage Days, the Musée national des arts asiatiques – MNAAG [National museum of Asian Arts] – offers a unique tour of Hotel Heidelbach on Saturday September 19 and Sunday September 20, 2020. Caution, do not forget to sign up by mail starting early September 2020.

Built between 1913 and 1915 by the Heidelbach couple and set 150 meters from the Musée Guimet, it's both a place where Chinese furniture collections are displayed for visiors and a relaxing area. Its garden - that reopened in spring 2018 - houses a tea pavilion, the chashitsu.

  • Discover the Garden and the tea pavilion, Saturday and Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. (tour every 45 minutes)
    This big and bright garden created by architects Agnes Latour-Kurashige and Jean-Sébastien Cluzel welcomes a genuine tea house given in 2001 by Japan, designed by architect Nakamura Masao.

  • Visit the apartments of the hôtel Heidelbach, Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. (tour every 45 minutes)
    Enjoy a 30-minute guided tour of these opulent-looking apartments. Built by architect René Sergent for a wealthy American couple, the hotel keeps the typical indoors of the period's taste and the transformations of the lifestyle, prior to modernity.
