Paris: Thursday 19 March


Visit of C2RMF @Louvre Palace

For ECM132 attendees, a visit of the Centre of Research and Restoration for French Museums (C2RMF) located in the Louvre Palace is organized.

The first registered persons (visit limited to 15 people) will have the opportunity to follow a private visit of the labs dedicated to Heritage Science located in the Louvre Palace that are not usually open to public. During the tour, the ECM guests will be welcome by conservation scientists, chemists and physicists who will explain the issues they are daily dealing with, the methodologies, instruments and techniques they are using and/or developing to answer the questioning of such important objects with their very specific constraints. The AGLAE facility will be open for our visit.
