Book the National Gendarmerie Museum, a grandiose and surprising place

Opened since October 10, 2015 and inaugurated by the Minister of the Interior on December 17, 2015, the National Gendarmerie Museum has taken its place, in Melun,in an old barracks building that has been completely renovated. Modern architecture and French history blend together to unveil a rich and original collection, a reflection of one of the oldest French institutions.

It is a unique museum which is highlighted by a huge flaming grenade forming its entrance. Inside, the largest suspended display case in Europe is the backbone of the exhibition.

There's no doubt that your events will not go unnoticed in this exceptional setting. Choosing the Musée de la Gendarmerie Nationale for your event means offering a unique venue that embodies the values of accessibility and modernity.

The Spaces available to hire of the Gendarmerie Museum

At the National Gendarmerie Museum, the spaces made available can be adapted to your needs and your event, thanks to a significant modularity of the offer.

Lélu Conference Room

Located on the second floor, opposite the exhibition space, the Lélu conference room is equipped with modern equipment: retractable projection screen and video projector, DVD player, integrated connections for two laptops, sound system and microphones. The space includes a flexible conference room (conference, meeting, cocktail, activity, etc.), a reception area with armchairs and sofas, and dedicated washrooms. It can be rented on its own or in addition to other spaces in the museum.


Once under the impressive flaming grenade, your guests will discover a spacious area from which they will see the jewel of the museum's architecture hanging over their heads: the huge window that pierces the entire building. This space serves the store, the temporary exhibition space, the cultural activities room and has a bathroom on the same level. An ideal place to set up a cocktail party or organize a speech. It can be rented alone or in addition to other spaces in the museum.
