Petit Futé's opinion on BONNAT-HELLEU MUSEUM

Vintage plate 2020

Since June 2016, the future of the Bonnat-Helleu Museum (closed since 2011) has been highlighted. Indeed, the project of the Brochet Lajus Pueyo architects' agency has been validated to lead the renovation and extension of the museum. Work began in early 2018 and is scheduled to reopen in 2021. Only the documentation and the drawing office remain accessible to students and researchers. It will be a real metamorphosis, the environment of the building will be completely modified. An audacious programme open to the city with a new breakthrough in the composite façade on rue Lafitte, a 300 m² temporary exhibition room in the basement, a 114-seat auditorium, an addition built adjacent to the Paul-Bert vocational high school? The museum's surface area will double to occupy 5,000 m². Inaugurated in 1901, the Bayonnais museum will preserve the scenography of its works (Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, El Greco, Delacroix, Dürer, Rubens, Ingres, Goya, etc.) while offering a renewed tour of the permanent collections. In order to guarantee the link between the museum and the inhabitants, a café-boutique area will be created. According to the town hall: "The museum will be at the heart of a real urban strategy to enhance the attractiveness, well-being and influence of the Petit-Bayonne, a district that is at the heart of the city's identity. "The aim is to welcome all types of visitors in an open and friendly space. The construction of the new Petit-Bayonne elementary school, the opening of the Koegui Hotel and the pedestrianisation of Rue Bourgneuf are solid assets to ensure this restructuring.
