Façade du musée

Hotel Donon, built in 1575, is a splendid testimony to the outstanding architecture of the residences and the refinement of 18th century society. Inside, the successive wood-panelled lounges that make up the spaces for the permanent collections provide an intimate and elegant setting. Outside, the cobbled courtyard and the "French-style" garden bear witness to the historic Marais area.

Filming and photography at the Cognacq-Jay Museum can be organised on Mondays (closing day) and outside opening hours, from Tuesday to Sunday before 10am and after 6pm. Adjustments to these availability times are possible on request.
