For the 39th edition of European Heritage Days, the National Institute for Art History (or Institut national d’histoire de l’art) invites you to enjoy free tours and entertainments for the whole family on September 17 and 18, 2022. The occasion to discover a building usually reserved for students and searchers.

For the 39th European Heritage Days, let us run to the Institut national d’histoire de l’art (or National Institute for Art History) providing you with tours and other entertainments all weekend long on September 17 and 18, 2022. Renovated by architect Henri Labrouste in the 19th century, the former imperial library invites you to discover its two spaces: the Labrouste room and the Colbert gallery. A wonderful tour for all fans of libraries and historic buildings!

Genuine architectural masterpiece, the place listed as historical monumentsince 1983 has reopened in 2016 after years of renovations… Usually reserved to students and searchers in the art history holding a reading card, its access is available to you for these two days of visit. By opening its doors, the INHA will offer people to discover places of research usually closed to them and discover what is tackled by the greatest issues of image through the discipline and what are the tools art historians need.

Note this year, European Heritage Days land on the same day as the reopning of all BnF spaces at the Richelieu location, after over ten years of renovations. The Salle Labrouste, the INHA library set in the Richelieu area will be open upon compulsory reservation. The ticketing service opens from late August on the BnF website.

All weekend long, meet professionals so they can answer all your questions about the history of art, heritage, research and its issues. 

Shall we go, friends?
