European Heritage Days 2018 at Auguste Comte’s house

On Saturday September 15 and Sunday September 16, 2018, Auguste Comte’s house opens for free on the occasion of European Heritage Days! Following a free tour, discover more about this renown philosopher’s life and work.

Maybe you’ve already read some of his works at school or during your studies, but who is Auguste Comte?

Father of sociology, this major 19th-century philosopher also developed positivism, “a global project reorganizing the society in its social, political, moral and even religious grounds” like the museum named after him says.

Speaking of this museum, it’s in lieu of the philosopher’s apartment and welcomes you for free during the weekend from September 15 to 16, 2018 for the 35th edition of European Heritage Days.

Set in rue Monsieur le Prince in the heart of the Latin Quarter, this museum-apartment hasn’t changed a bit since Auguste Comte died, 151 years ago.

Remembrance place, this apartment invites its visitors to a real travel back in time alongside the philosopher and allows of course to know more about his theories and to understand the ins and outs better.

For European Heritage Days 2018, the admission is free of charge and you don’t need a prior registration. The museum will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
