Grande Nef (Nave Hall)

Tucked behind the splendours of the rose garden, this neoclassical style setting can host your exclusive cocktail receptions and dinners, completely independently from public opening hours. The Grande Nef, with its surprising lengthwise layout, offers a perfect setting for fashion shows, showrooms and tradeshows.

Depending on the time of your event, your guests could benefit from exceptional access to the exhibition Trésors de la Terre (Treasures of the Earth), with or without speaker guides. With hundreds of minerals and twenty or so giant crystals, the collections in the Galerie de Géologie et de Minéralogie are sure to arouse your curiosity.
