Information about the association
Founded in 1972, it plays an active role in the life of Compiègne's museums.
As privileged partners, the Friends are committed to enriching the collections and supporting initiatives to ensure their preservation and study.
In return for a membership fee, they welcome all those who wish to join them in promoting the reputation of Compiègne's museums.
Various events are organized for members of the Association: visits to museum exhibitions, conferences, outings, week-long trips..
Members traditionally enjoy free admission to the Antoine Vivenel and Figurine Historique museums, and are invited to all events organized there. They also benefit from a reduced rate on all activities organized by the Association, as well as a 10% discount on purchases from museum stores, excluding bookshops (5% on postcards and books).
