Our school’s memory

After some years (from 1986 to 1994) in an only one classroom of André Cloix school in Nevers, the Musée Nivernais de l’Education can have set up in more spacious and fonctionnal offices of the ex “école de la maîtrise”,  8 rue du Cloître St Cyr. This can have been made possible as from the first day of school in 1994 and thanks to the City hall which put the offices at our disposal. 

The museum can have emphasized its collections and expanded them regularly thanks to numerous gifts of people aware of the research and the preservation of our school inheritance.

Fruit of researches made since 1967 by some teachers of the Centre Départemental de Documentation Pédagogique de Nevers managed by Raymond Frébault at that time, the museum is made for very diversified public both in ages and in its culture. It is a space of discoveries for the youth, an education instrument for the school of today and it is a space of souvenirs in which great generations will find the emotions of their childhood.

Set up in neighborhood full of history, along one of the two blue lines which compose the tourist circuit of the town, it is managed by the Association des "Amis du Musée Nivernais de L'Education" (A.M.N.E) created in 1988..

The museum reopened on Saturday, July 1st  2017 at 54 Boulevard Victor Hugo.
