Emmanuel Macron announces the creation of a museum on the history of the cathedral, and a competition to create contemporary stained glass windows

“An important and moving moment”. Emmanuel Macron announced the upcoming creation of a “museum of the work of Notre-Dame de Paris”dedicated to ” the story “ and to ” art ” of the Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral, as well as the Hôtel-Dieu, opposite, where it should be installed. The Head of State visits the reconstruction site of the building, Friday December 8, one year to the day before the announced date of its reopening to the public. Visitors will also be able to discover new stained glass windows in the nave: Emmanuel Macron announced the launch of an open competition “to contemporary artists”who must submit “a figurative work”. It will replace six stained glass windows which will be exhibited in the future museum, as well as the rooster which topped the old spire. Follow our live broadcast.

Emmanuel Macron interviewed on France 2. The Head of State will be the guest of the France 2 program “13 Heures” which is offering a special issue dedicated to the Notre-Dame construction site. Presented by Julian Bugier, she will propose a line-up composed of Philippe Jost, president of the public establishment Rebâtir Notre-Dame de Paris, Olivier Ribadeau-Dumas, rector-archpriest of Notre-Dame de Paris, and the singer Vianney, godfather of the Telethon 2023. Many companions and craftsmen will explain their daily work restoring the monument. Stéphane Bern will be in duplex from the Louvre museum, where a new exhibition entitled “The treasure of Notre-Dame de Paris” is currently taking place. Franceinfo also offers a special issue, to follow on franceinfo channel 27 and franceinfo.fr.

Visit to the new spire. The head of state inspected the new spire of Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris. The President of the Republic also made a special tribute to General Jean-Louis Georgelin, who led the reconstruction of Notre-Dame until his accidental death this summer, by engraving part of his name in the wood of the spire.

A freshly erected cross. The spire of Notre-Dame found its center on Wednesday. Overlooking a golden crown, it was lifted into the air by a crane and installed at the top of the new spire, whose restoration, under scaffolding, is nearing completion.

The project is scheduled to end in 2029 or 2030. Even if the reopening to the public is planned for December 8, 2024, this does not mean that the work will be completed: numerous interventions are still planned, including the restoration of the flying buttresses of the nave and the choir. This third phase of the project (after security and restoration) should only be completed at the end of the decade, in 2029 or 2030, according to the Elysée.
