School visits

The Musée de l’Elysée encourages young people to submerge themselves in the world of photography and is happy to receive school parties. For these visits, admission to the museum is free for pupils, students and the teachers accompanying them. For each exhibition, the museum prepares an Educational Toolkit that teachers can use as a support before and after the visit. Teachers can opt for a guided tour or choose to give their own guided tour.
