Once the Garde-meuble de la Couronne used to store royal furniture (the predecessor to the Mobilier National), the Hôtel de la Marine bears witness to the changes that have marked the history of France, from the age of royalty to the modern day. In 2020 it will be opening its doors to the public 7 days a week with an exceptional cultural programme. Accompanied by their Confidant - a headset for 3D audio effects - visitors are taken on an immersive visit of the sumptuous apartments complete with furnishings and the state rooms that provided access to the loggia overlooking Place de la Concorde. Various visit options are available - including one specially designed for families - to create a tailored experience lasting 30 to 90 minutes. Lastly, the exhibition gallery at the Hôtel de la Marine will be presenting a constantly changing selection of masterpieces from the Al Thani Collection for the first time.
