Maison de la Mémoire et du Patrimoine Janny Couttet - heritage centre

in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc

This house is a place of valorization of the oral and photographic archives collected by the Municipal Archives and a center of documentary resources. Several exhibitions are held each year.

This house is dedicated to: the conservation of sound, oral and photographic archives collected by the "Mémoires de la ville" service; the promotion of archives and heritage in general through interpretative exhibitions and cultural activities; consultation and research with a documentary resource center open to all, including a library and a historical photo library (database available for consultation on site)
This place can evolve thanks to your contribution and your active participation. Each of you has documents that could complete the exhibitions or the archives. To enrich the collections, several possibilities are offered to you: donation or deposit. The documents collected in this way will then be classified, inventoried, digitized and finally used in the historical photo library, the exhibitions or the animations. Do not hesitate to contact us.

From June 18 to November 11, 2022
