  • Seen the Presidency of J. Chirac through all the gifts that have been offered official trips or visits by heads of State in France. The visitable reserve is very rich of different objects as well as the organized according to continents.

  • This museum allows to discover other facets of our presidents and in particular their relationship both internationally than in the French regions. We can't be that surprised and sometimes impressed gifts that can receive our presidents of their counterparts, but also often of individuals. This museum is really interesting for everything about president Jacques Chirac... Much less for temporary exhibitions. I spent with my wife two hours in this museum to enjoy thousands of gifts received by the president. Some worth barely a few euros but certainly having tremendous emotional value while others are priceless. This museum is located in the heart of the region of origin of Jacques Chirac and not far from one of his residences. On the other hand, temporary exhibitions we have little drawn as well as the small gift shop based mainly at base of books.

  • This museum is a good idea. Very nice gifts offered to the president. Lack of explanations on the temporary exhibition. The layout of the rooms is not ideal. The last room containing all the gifts in "bulk" in dire need of light and touch screens do not work very well.

  • Modern Museum, where are collected all offered objects, to President Jacques Chirac during his two terms, his visits abroad or during visits by his counterparts in Paris. You can find everything, carefully arranged by continent, with photos that have marked the history of France. Worth a visit, you will have no regrets of having visited. It will be a touching unforgettable because unique!
