  • The port of Toulon in the XNUMXth century seen by Joseph Vernet (need to be able to project paintings in class to study them)

  • The imaginary museum (plastic workshop supervised by Nicole Budonaro, visual artist)
  • The Navy in Toulon, a course in the old center of Toulon
  • The conservatory of dress (museum of military uniform) within the naval base

In order to make his remarks more concrete for the students, the mediator will bring to class different objects and models that are easily transportable.

For each activity, the mediator will integrate a practical and creative activity with the students. These “Outside the Walls” visits are meant to be educational, lively and fun.

The "Galères et bagne" and "La corderie royale de Toulon, masterpiece of Vauban" visits take place within the walls of the Historical Defense Service (SHD), next to the museum. The visit, taken in charge by a museum mediator, is then supplemented by mediation around several SHD archives (registers of convicts and galley slaves, plans of the corderie ...). These visits should, as far as possible, take place on Friday (SHD opening day for groups).

♦ For the visit of the holding conservatory, a period of at least one month between the reservation and the visit must be respected because administrative documents will have to be completed in order to gain access to the naval base.

The duration of the animation is flexible according to the groups and the requirements of the classes. Thank you for informing us of any difficulties in accessing your establishment and agreeing with the museum on a time of arrival of the mediator and installation of equipment during your reservation. The entertainment can take place at a time that suits you, from 8:30 a.m..

Starting May 2, resumption of visits and workshops at the museum. Book your visits as soon as possible!
