Museum Directories/Répertoires des musées

You are looking for museum addresses. You may consult the following printed international or national museum directories. We list here the most recent directories that are available for sale and directories that are part of the collections of the Centre which may have ceased to be available. We also list directories available on the Web. This list is by no means comprehensive. Additional information is most welcome and we will add it to this page. We will be happy to receive any new and revised edition of existing museum directories.

Vous cherchez des adresses de musées. Consultez l'un de ces répertoires internationaux ou nationaux. Nous avons indiqué les répertoires les plus récents disponibles sur le marché, ainsi que les titres de répertoires qui font partie des collections du centre et qui ne sont peut-être plus disponibles. Nous indiquons aussi quelques répertoires consultables sur le Web. Cette liste ne prétend pas à l'exhaustivité. Merci de nous aider à mettre à jour cette page. Nous serons heureux de recevoir toute nouvelle édition mise à jour de répertoires de musées.
