Days of Architecture
Visit : discovering the buildings of the National Automobile Museum
On Saturday 8 October 2022, Forcopar and the National Automobile Museum invite the public to come and discover the buildings of the former Heilmann-Koechlin et Cie factory. A worsted wool mill still in operation in 1960, it was bought by the Schlumpf brothers who dreamed of turning it into a museum. It opened its doors in 1978 in a particular context. We will have the opportunity to see this site of more than 5 hectares differently from a visitor to the Museum: inside and outside the buildings, still in the same state as when they were closed down, or preserved and converted for their current use.
Meet at the museum entrance at 2.15pm
- This visit doesn’t give access to the museum’s exhibition rooms
