The Musée de Picardie in June

For the month of June, the Musée de Picardie is ready to bring you an exciting and eclectic events programme! Meetings, exhibitions, conferences ... Although still in the process of building works, we are pleased to announce that the museum is spreading out across the city !


We start off with the 23rd Rendez-vous de la Bande-Dessinée (Comic strip event) organized by the Association "On a marché sur la bulle" scheduled for 2nd and 3rd June at the Halle Freyssinet (Gare la Vallée).
The "Corps à l'épreuve" exhibition is still running from 15th May to 6th July at Café Noir le Safran.
On 5th June at 1.00 p.m., discover "L'envers du Chantier" with Olivier Battais who will be the speaker this month talking about the work that has been in progress at the Museum for almost a year.

Make it a date at 5, rue Puvis de Chavannes, in the lobby.

Thursday 14th, you can attend the "Images Médiévales du Corps Sacré, de l’Incarnation à l’Iconoclasme" (Medieval images of the incarnation of the Sacred Body in Iconoclasm) hosted by Cécile Bulté, Doctor of Medieval Art History.
COME TO the Bibliothèque Louis Aragon, in the Charles Pinsard auditorium.
16th and 17th are National Archeology Days. The archaeological sites of Glisy are unveiled on 16th and 17th June at the Salle d'Art de Glisy exhibition, from 2.00 to 5.00 p.m. It will be presenting Neolithic to Gallo-Roman remains, found during excavations carried out in the area.


You can also take a detour to the Hôpital Philippe Pinel where there will be a small display of archaeological curiosities. From 10.00 to 11.00 a.m., the Musée de Picardie prehistoric and antiquity collections will take a trip to the hospital where they will remain until 17th September. This is an opportunity to see them in the company of Noël Mahéo, chief heritage curator in charge of the archaeological collections at the Musee de Picardie. They'll be on display in a rather unusual and unknown location in the hospital chapel.
Address: Hôpital Philippe-Pinel, Route de Paris, 80044 Amiens


Finally, take yourself off to the "Royal Meeting of the States General" being held in the Cour d'Honneur in the Hotel de Ville of Amiens on Wednesday, 27th June at 1.00 p.m. This will be your Hors d'oeuvre for the month!
