Discovery of the Pavilion Balsan, European Heritage Days

pavillon Balsan

On the 36th year of the European Heritage Days, the Foch Hospital Foundation opened the doors of the Balsan Pavilion. For the first time, we gave unprecedented access to the Pavilion.
This iconic place in the heart of the town of Suresnes was built in 1892 by the eldest son of Charles-Frédéric Worth. In 1926, the pavilion was named after Ms Consuelo Vanderbilt Balsan, an American philanthropist. The site of Charles-Frédéric Worth’s former castle, who was the famous fashion designer who dressed the Empress Eugénie, among others, was chosen as the site for constructing the future hospital.
During the guided tours, carried out in collaboration with the Social and Urban History Museum of Suresnes, you will have the opportunity to discover its architecture as well as its history.

Opening times:
21/09 from 2pm to 3pm
21/09 from 3:30pm to 4:30pm
21/09 from 5pm to 6pm
