Reading room closures in 2018

It is strongly recommended not to bring suitcases or luggage to the Archives Nationales. Only luggage less than 55cm*35cm*20cm will be accepted. This applies to the Soubise Musuem and Paris and Pierrefitte reading rooms

Due to the difficulties of transport encountered during the next days of strike, the activity of reading rooms can be disrupted: late opening, temporary or partial restrictions. It is therefore best to inquire about the situation early in the morning. A message will be published each morning to warn of any difficulties.

  • The Archives Nationales reading rooms in Paris and Pierrefitte-sur-Seine will be closed to the public on :

    - Mardi 23 janvier
    - Samedi 31 mars et lundi 2 avril (fête de Pâques)
    - Mardi 1er mai
    - Mardi 8 mai
    -Jeudi 10 mai (fête de l'Ascension)
    - Samedi 19 mai et lundi 21 mai (fête de la Pentecôte)
    - Mardi 19 juin
