Museum of the 1930s
In the 1930s, Boulogne was one of the most dynamic cities in France. It was here, on the outskirts of the capital, that filmmakers Abel Gance, Marcel Carné or Jean Renoir, architects Le Corbusier, Mallet Stevens or Tony Garnier had chosen to live or work…. It was also in Boulogne that several car and aeronautics industries had set up, such as Renault on the island of Seguin. Renault industries have now given way to the Seine Musicale, a complex with a unique architecture that brings together concert, exhibition, promenade, restaurant and commercial spaces linked to art and culture.
30s, prosperous years
Based on memories - photos, posters, objects but also paintings and sculptures - the Musée des années 30 retraces the artistic bubbling and technological dynamism that marked the inter-war period in France.
On 2000m², the works in the permanent collection (paintings, decorative objects, furniture, models of houses) and temporary exhibitions allow visitors to (re)discover the aesthetics of these prosperous years: from figurative art to Art Deco, through the Ecole de Paris, this group of young artists from Eastern Europe who lived and worked in the Montparnasse district between the two wars.
