Making collections accessible to the public
Whether it is "in situ" or through digital tools, the dissemination of collections is a mission of the museums of France. The objective is to facilitate access to and understanding of museum assets by all audiences.
Enabling public knowledge, education and enjoyment is one of the missions of the museums of France (Article L410-1 of the Heritage Code). In recent years, digital tools have participated in this mission, as have temporary and permanent exhibitions and books. They also facilitate contact with audiences outside the world of museums and even culture.
The in situ mediation promoting contact and understanding of collections by various audiences is one of the reasons why museums exist! Find here the resources on mediation and the improvement of the public knowledge of museums in France.
