Organising a professional event in a museum is not something you usually do. And yet, it allows you to give your employees a unique and cultural experience. However, in order to give you an idea of this new trend, we have found an example for you. Today, we present the new reception area of the Musée des Confluences, the Galerie Émile Guimet.
First of all, the Musée des Confluences is an amazing place for your business events in Lyon. Located on the tip of Lyon’s peninsula, at the confluence of the Rhône and the Saône, this contemporary museum focuses on natural history, anthropology, societies and civilisations. Thus, by wandering through the various rooms of the museum, discover the history of humans and Nature. Throughout the year, temporary and permanent exhibitions await you.
As one of the most visited museums in France, this place will undoubtedly dazzle your employees with its daring architecture. It was designed by the Coop Himmelb(l)au, the internationally renowned group of architects.
At the end of the day, when the general public leaves this exceptional place, the museum is ready to welcome your professional events. Your teams can thus make the most of the collections inside the museum.
Six spaces can be privatized for your conferences, cocktail parties, meetings, seminars and other events:
Moreover, since its opening in 2014, this accessible, inspiring and innovative cultural venue has already hosted over 300 events. Entrust your projects to an experienced team that will meet all your needs!
Privatise the Emile Guimet Gallery for your meetings, workshops, cocktails or any other professional meal and take advantage of 400m² of modular space.
Similarly, since 18 September 2021, this Gallery has been promoting the works of the donors of the Musée des Confluences since its origins. By organising events in this space, your employees will have the chance to observe more than 250 remarkable objects and specimens from the donations or legacies of 80 donors.
Depending on the configuration, the capacity can also vary:
In short, this space is accessible from Monday to Friday, during the day, in the evening and outside school holidays and public holidays.
Whether it is for a seminar, a meeting, a cocktail party or any other private event, the staff of the Musée des Confluences guarantees to make your guests experience a memorable event.
The name attributed to this gallery is quite obvious. Indeed, Émile Guimet (1836-1918) was one of the oldest and most generous donors to the Lyon museum. The members of the Musée des Confluences have therefore decided to honour this famous industrialist from Lyon and this great traveller and collector. To give you an example, as early as 1878, Émile Guimet organised an exhibition on the religions of the Far East.
On the other hand, this new permanent exhibition has a special place in the museum. Above all, it highlights the life of the collectors. It also bears witness to the collective memory. The diversity of the collection will undoubtedly impress your staff. They will also be able to read the life stories of the donors. The collections presented in the museum’s showcases come from adventurers, anthropologists and ethnologists.
Finally, more than 100 professional events were organised in this gallery.
