Contemporary art illuminates the historical and architectural past of the Royaumont Abbey, making it a magnificent place for exhibitions and shows.

At the Royaumont Abbey, the most modern of works take on a singular resonance. This ancient monastery from the 13th-century has become a dynamic centre for contemporary art. A unique place harbouring diverse artistic disciplines that anchor rare historical and acoustical qualities.

Between the majestic walls of the abbey, artists and creators from all horizons work together in the fields of music and contemporary dance. Exhibitions, concerts, performances and video or sound installations make the Royaumont a unique cultural and artistic experience. A visit to the Abbey is also a beautiful architectural discovery.

Don’t miss the giant bell that echoes the past as it dominates the courtyard, the last remaining vestige of the church destroyed by a fire…now a work of art in itself. The harmony accorded between medieval and contemporary extends itself well into the gardens as well.
