The Joan of Arc Historial, the largest site dedicated to the memory of Joan of Arc, is set in the heart of the Archbishop’s Palace of Rouen. Closely linked to Joan of Arc’s destiny, this site of exceptional architectural quality houses the remains of the room known as l’Officialité, the ‘Official Room’, where her sentence was pronounced in 1431, and where her rehabilitation trial took place in 1456.
After undergoing superb restoration, this building, classified as a National Historic Monument, is open to the public to cast new light on the history of the Maiden from Orleans. The Joan of Arc Historial aims to respond to a dual need: to present the saga of Joan of Arc, and to uncover the legend, with the aid of cutting-edge multimedia technology brought together in a spectacular scenography.

Covering almost 1000 m2 and divided into fifteen distinct spaces, visitors will be transported into the heart of the 15th century. Guided by the image of Juvénal des Ursins, ecclesiastic and jurist, who led the rehabilitation trial, visitors will be fully immersed in an interactive display that is both educational and fun, and accessible to everyone.
All crew members have an exclusive and FREE access to both the Panorama XXL and the Joan of Arc History Museum. They just need to show their crew card to gain access to these star attractions of Rouen.
