The Centre des monuments nationaux would like to warmly thank the patrons of the Hôtel de la Marine.

The founding patrons

  • The Al Thani Collection Foundation

    The Al Thani Collection Foundation decisively helped restore the Hôtel de la Marine and helped it acquire some items that have enriched the collections displayed in the apartments of Thierry de Ville d’Avray.

  • Joseph Achkar and Michel Charrière

    As patronage in kind, Joseph Achkar and Michel Charrière contributed their expertise and skill to restoring 18th-century parts of the Hôtel de la Marine, including the apartments of Thierry de Ville d’Avray and those of his wife.

  • Velux Foundations

    The glass roof over the Intendant’s courtyard at the Hôtel de la Marine, made by Hugh Dutton (HDA Studio), enjoyed exclusive patronage from the Velux Foundations.

  • La compagnie du Ponant

    Ponant is a world leader in luxury expeditions and the only French builder of cruise liners. The firm financially helped restore the chief of staff’s old office and produce the explanatory support featuring there.


    Siaci Saint Honoré serves businesses as a leader in consultancy and brokerage in insurance for goods and people. It financially helped restore and refurbish the mirrors room and the golden room.

  • Dentsu Aegis Network

    As patronage through expertise, the Dentsu Aegis Network communication group put its vision of customer experience to good use for the Centre des monuments nationaux for the launch of the monument.

  • Rolex France

    Rolex, the Swiss watchmaker known worldwide for its expertise and for the high quality of its products, served as a patron in helping acquire a clock and in helping restore five 18th-century clocks provided by the Louvre Museum.

Take part in the cultural life of the monument, support the acquisition of a work of art, help develop learning programmes … each firm can back the project that best fits its values, image and aims.
