Those interested in the story of Joan of Arc have a new destination – Rouen, where the Joan of Arc History Centre opened last month, making use of a 15th century Archbishop’s palace that played a role in history of the Maid of Orléans.

The story of Joan of Arc, French heroine and Catholic Saint, is intrinsically linked with that of Rouen. It was here that she was tried and burnt at the stake in 1431 and, after a second trial in 1456, exonerated. The legacy of Joan of Arc can be found throughout the city from the Place du Vieux Marché, where she met her fate and which today has a church in her honour, to the Archbishop’s palace where both her trials took place.

The museum is the result of a €10 million project that combines a state of the art immersive exhibition space with comprehensive historical content, inviting the visitor to step back in time to the 15th century and become a witness and participant in Joan of Arc’s trial.

Visits will be conducted in groups of up to twenty-five people per group and four groups per hour and will be accompanied with audio guides, available in different languages. An educational centre will be available for both school groups and families.

The museum believes they will be able to attract between 100,000 and 150,000 visitors per year.
