A museum in the Orient of Paris – Le grand Orient…. a masonic lodge in fact.
Le Grand Orient has hosted a museum for over a century, but most recently the site at 16 rue Cadet in the 9th arrondissement, was renovated and reopened with a much more coherent and refined presentation of lodge’s treasures, and dubbed Musée de France. The Ministry of Culture, the Région of the Île de France and The city of Paris all contributed to the renovation, and the doors were re-opened on February 11th 2010.
