Organise your events in the museum! Whether it is a working day (training, team building, specific tour: appropriating your heritage to know yourself better, understand it, accept it in what distinguishes us as a person or as a community) or evening event (conference, seminar, tour for your team / staff or your customers), the Piconrue Museum of the Great Ardennes offers a whole infrastructure: monastery, cafeteria, audiovisual space, public …
