Renovation of the winter garden and the neo-Renaissance lounge

The construction work undertaken from 2014 to 2015 has seen the restoration and renovation of the ground floor areas which will now be open to the public after a 15-year closure. This includes a neo-Renaissance lounge with stucco colonnades (which gave it the nickname “the column room”) that overlooks a winter garden. These spaces will be used to host events, concerts, shows, meetings, conferences and temporary exhibitions.

A lounge-library

The “column room” will be used for more intimate gatherings like readings or book signing events. There will be a library in a section of the lounge where visitors will be able to consult a selection of works relevant to the museum’s programme. These books will be on sale at the museum shop. Other books available for purchase can be consulted on request.

Situated in a studio-mansion in the heart of the Plaine Monceau quarter, the Musée national Jean-Jacques Henner offers an exceptional space for your private events. The former house of painter Guillaume Dubufe (1853-1909) is one of the rare examples of private architecture under the Third Republic. The current renovation of the ground floor, the winter garden and the neo-Renaissance lounge will return this house to its standing as a venue for fine social gatherings.
