Tourism professionals

This page is addressed to professionals of the tourism industry (travel agencies, tour bus companies, purchasing advisors, tourist offices…) and to group managers (cultural and professional associations, work counsels…) wishing to organise a visit within the Château d’Écouen National Renaissance Museum.


The essential information is listed here and the communications and public service is ready to help you organise a visit that meets your expectations as closely as possible.


Practical Information

The museum is open every day except Tuesdays

From 9:30 to 12:45 and from 2:00 to 5:45 (5:15 in the winter)

The park and the estate are open (free of charge) every day from 8:00 to 7:00 (6:00 in the winter)


Visit on your own, or with a lecture tour

Groups can visit the museum with their own lecturers, or on their own. They have only to purchase the entrance tickets. There is no extra fee if groups choose to have an outside lecturer.

The museum offers visits guided by a National Museums lecturer in French or in a foreign language (English, Italian, German, or Spanish). These visits can be general or thematic (there are more than 20 themes available), or they can present the current exhibitions.


Reservations Necessary

Whether visiting on your own or as part of a lecture tour, reservations are free but required in order to best handle incoming visitors. For security reasons groups cannot have more than 30 people (groups with more than 30 people must divide in two before entering the museum).



The Delyan restaurant proposes menus for the groups from 18 € for the lunch.
