    The Cité des Présents is a major cultural facility being developed by the Nièvre Departmental Council. It will open its doors in spring 2025 in Château-Chinon. Situated in the heart of the Morvan and its natural surroundings, the Cité des Présents invites visitors to reflect on the future of fashion and to decipher the issues at stake in French diplomacy and international affairs.

    Built around Château-Chinon's two former museums, the Musée du Septennat and the Musée du Costume, the Cité des Présents offers visitors almost 4,500 m² of exhibition space with two collections with distinct contents: Arts et Diplomatie on the one hand, presenting some of the diplomatic gifts received by François Mitterrand as part of his presidential duties; and Mode et Costumes on the other, offering a panorama of the history of fashion from the 18th century to the present day.
    The Cité des Présents also offers temporary exhibitions, cultural activities, a programme of events, wandering gardens offering a panoramic view of the Morvan, a bookshop-shop, a mediation room and a conference room.
