The Al Thani Collection opens a museum space at the Hôtel de la Marine

The Centre des monuments nationaux and the Al Thani Collection Foundation are pleased to announce the opening of the museum space dedicated to showing artworks from the Al Thani Collection at the Hôtel de la Marine. The space has launched with the exhibition – Treasures of the Al Thani Collection – which showcases a rich diversity of approximately 120 artworks drawn from across the Collection, bringing together exceptional works of art from antiquity to modern times. Celebrating the unifying force of art across cultures, it will juxtapose superlative works of art from different civilisations, sharing with the public high points of creative expression across periods and geographies.

The museum space at the Hôtel de la Marine is the result of a long-term agreement between the CMN and The Al Thani Collection Foundation that will see works from the Collection shown over the next 20 years. Located on the Place de la Concorde in the heart of Paris, the space provides for the long-term display of works drawn from across the entire collection. In addition, it hosts a biannual series of themed and focussed exhibitions and provides a venue for loans from international museum partners, as well as educational events and seminars.
