The foundation invites the public to support the development of the many projects of a museum complex overflowing with life and creativity.

Contributing to our fundraising activities keeps the mission of Musées de la civilisation alive, which is to provide a place for reflection and meetings between the individual, society and the human race through a thematic and multidisciplinary approach.

To carry out its projects, the foundation works in close collaboration with the business community and individuals sensitive to the mission of Musées. It reaches its financial objectives through an annual fundraising campaign.
