Some teachers wish to ensure their pupils’ behaviour and their pedagogical accompaniment in the museum.

We invite all these teachers to prepare their visit. It is important to get one’s bearings in advance. Our advice is to not present more than a dozen works during a visit, selecting them not only for their interest but also their visibility.

Talking is subject to rules in the museum. Only teachers and lecturers possessing a professional card are allowed to take the floor before a group. They must be wearing a “person in charge” badge that they will be given on arrival in the museum.

In the instance when a guide to the visit was written by the teacher to  encourage the pupils’ observation on their own, we strongly advise breaking up the class in small groups under an accompanist’s responsibility.

The art and applied arts schools teachers who come with their pupils to draw in the permanent collections are invited during their sketching sessions to not linger near the safety exits and to be careful to leave the areas of circulation easily accessible.
