Tours and workshops

The Franciscan educational service offers a wide range of visits and workshops, as well as the possibility of following an itinerary from kindergarten to senior high school.

Tailor-made projects can be devised to meet the needs of teachers and education professionals. From the initial visit to the final educational assessment, the education department will accompany you throughout your experience at Les Franciscaines.

Your visit to Les Franciscaines can take place in a variety of formats, combining visits, workshops and independent time in the media library's thematic worlds. These formats range from 1h to 2h15.

All tours and workshops can be adapted to the different themes of the Franciscaines' collections: painting, history and art history from the 19th century to the present day, literature, performing arts, cinema, photography, digital creation and the equestrian world.
