The Maison Léon Blum is the last home of the illustrious statesman, man of letters and architect of many social advances. All the rooms can be visited, from the kitchen to the modest bedrooms and the vast office-library.
Léon Blum lived there from 1945, on his return from the Buchenwald camp, until his death in 1950.
The day after his death, his wife Jeanne had plans to convert the house into a museum. When she died in 1982, Jeanne Blum bequeathed the house to the commune of Jouy-en-Josas with the mission of maintaining the memory of Léon Blum and developing cultural and artistic activities there.
Listed as a Historic Monument, the House became a museum in 1986 and was awarded the label "Maison des Illustres" by the Ministry of Culture in 2012.
Since 2017, it has benefited from a new permanent exhibition space that can be used by groups and schools. This space is composed of multiple documentary resources that allow the life and work of Léon Blum to be retraced in all its diversity.
As Jeanne wished, the Maison Léon Blum is today a living place of memory and culture.
From 01/01 to 31/12.
