The museum was inspired by people and the need to hold their attention, from its entrance via a large square on Rue Puvis de Chavannes to its intimate garden on the other side. Indeed, as soon as you enter, you’ll be inside a spacious, luminous contemporary space where you’ll find everything you need to plan out your visit.
La Rotonde by internationally renowned artist Sol Lewit always impresses with its explosion of bold colours (yellow, blue, red, green) that are well suited to the geometric shapes. It also provides a fitting introduction to the venue by confirming that you’re in a happy, zen, relaxed museum.
La Chapelle with its spectacular decor a little further along the ground floor is now your space – a Salon des Visiteurs designe for rest, meetings, exchanges and even board games. There, in the heart of the sanctuary and the nave with its ribbed vaults, you can enjoy a complimentary tea or coffee especially created for the museum by the Amiens roaster Dasi & Georges Cannon.
But the most user-friendly aspect of this museum is that the artworks are hung at human height, so you don’t need to stretch your neck. You approach a work face to face – ideal for deep contemplation.
