Renovation of the hôtel Biron

Now it has become urgent to begin renovations so that it will conform to modern norms of security and accessibility and renovate its museography as well.

The programme for work of improvement includes the museography, the renovation of the exhibition rooms, the adaptation to current norms of accessibility of the entire building, the opening of new visiting rooms, restoration and refi nishing of the parquets, and a complete renewal of the museographic course.
