Hosting at the Cognacq-Jay museum

Set in the heart of the Marais, the Cognacq-Jay museul is home to the art collection of the founder of La Samaritaine department stores. The museum boasts a rich collection of paintings and sculptures by eighteenth-century masters, along with furniture and other decorative items of exceptional rarity. The Hôtel Donon, which houses the museum, is a magnificent example of 18th-century upper-class Parisian architecture, an eloquent witness to the refinement of high society in this era. The museum has a number of spaces which are perfectly suited to hosting special events, offering an intimate, elegant setting for your gathering.

The museum can be hired for seminars, breakfasts, luncheons, cocktails or dinner parties, and can be assorted with a private viewing of the collection or the current temporary exhibition.
Please note that we do not accept private parties hosted by individuals.
