Located in a distinctive 17th-century hotel, the Carnavalet Museum has been undergoing renovations since 2016. The museum stands out for its collections on the history of Paris, providing unique insight into the history of the capital and its inhabitants.
The goal of the renovation project is to reshape the museum’s architecture, to modernize the museography by creating a new, more chronological exhibition tour, to create new logistics areas and spaces for events, restaurants as well as a heritage and cultural research and resource center.
Paris Musées brought Reciproque on board to help the Carnavalet Museum team define and program the mediation devices for the new permanent exhibition. These devices must clearly respond to the objectives set out in the museum’s mediation policy as well as to the scenographic proposals designed by Agence Nathalie Crinière.
