FOR ALL

Keen to make visits rewarding and encourage a dialogue with its visitors, the Fondation decided after opening to recruit a team of professional, multilingual guides to work in the exhibition spaces. They are trained in passing on their cultural knowledge to the public, and are on hand throughout the Fondation's opening hours.
 
Their language skills allow them to answer questions in the most common European languages, but also in less familiar languages, including Japanese, Russian, Greek and Chinese.

Shorts tours

Led by specialised guides, micro-tours are a chance to discover architectural highlights at the Fondation at a glance. Designed to be enjoyed either alone or in a small group, these tours are the perfect introduction to the building, the commissions, the exhibitions… providing a satisfying overview.

 

For the exhibition Architectural Journey Frank Gehry, the short tours themes cover: construction and materials, inpirations and environement, commissions.
