Support the museum

The patrons and sponsors have played a key role ever since the opening of the Museum and provide essential support for the Museum's numerous projects. The Museum strives to conceive events that are adapted to its sponsors by sharing its values with them. 

The museum is a cultural hub as well as an area where the Arts and Civilizations of Africa, Asia, Oceania and the Americas are showcased. As such, it offers a rich and varied cultural program where performances, projections, workshops and mediation activities linked to diversity, solidarity, accessibility, research and sustainable development animate the Museum's daily life.

Patrons have a major role at the very heart of museum life. They are granted benefits in accordance with the donation (entrance tickets, annual passes, PR events organization). They benefit from personalized visibility depending on the project supported and their patronage strategy. There are various options: collaboration with project communication plan (poster, publication, information material for the public...), dedicated page on the museum website, joint press releases, long-term inclusion on the patrons wall in the museum and more. They also attend key events such as opening nights or dedicated private tours. 


Sponsorship gives companies the option to manage particular operations: product launch, promotional filming, brand promotion, etc. The museum supports this commercial approach by implementing specific communication and PR initiatives.
