New Gallery for Gifts

The musee de l’Histoire de l’immigration or the Museum of the History of Immigration’s gallery for gifts has been completely revamped.

From Tuesday 01 April 2014 to Sunday 31 December 2017

Palais de la Porte Dorée - Musée de l'Histoire de l'immigration

Taking a perspective of more interactive exchanges with its public, the musee de l’Histoire de l’‘immigration is re-opening its Gift Gallery after the renovation of its museography.

This area of some 450 metres square displays archives, photos and various objects that are evidence of a personal or collective migratory itinery.

Organised in the form of display cabinets that preserve its collections, the sequence of exhibits invites you to discover some forty or more accounts of the life of migrants. A symbol of transmission, a 'tree of gifts’ rises at the centre of the planned exhibition to collect together stories or details of people who wish to share their experiences.

From the boots of the last soldier in the First World War, Lazare Ponticelli, who arrived in France running barefoot behind a train to the statuette made of soft bread created by a prisonner of the Argentinian dictatorship, this stirring presentation underlines the importance of the collective memory in our societies.
