A team of information assistants welcome visitors and help them discover the building and the exhibition. The team is also there to talk with the public about the exhibition and the artist’s work.

The art centre produces a visiting guide that is handed to every visitor. It comprises an introduction to the work of the artist or artists, a detailed room-by-room presentation of the works, an exhibition plan with the list of works on display and, finally, a reminder of events related to the exhibition.

A documentation space is accessible to visitors in the reception area at Le Grand Café, and in the Radôme, on the roof of the submarine base, during the summer. Both spaces offer a selection of publications on the exhibited artists and their sources (including books, catalogues, artist’s dossiers, press reviews, videos, or websites).

Free guided exhibition tours are regularly organised, with no booking required.


Group visits can be booked during each exhibition. The type of visit can be tailored to a particular group (for an age group, a community group or a business, for example). These visits are usually followed by some time to exchange and share ideas with the assistants.

The opening hours of the exhibition spaces can be adapted to suit the requirements of group visits.
