About: The American Friends of Blérancourt, Inc. was established in 1985 to support the French National Museum in the Château de Blérancourt in Picardie, France. The Museum is dedicated to documenting the political, social and cultural contacts between the two countries, and particularly how they have viewed each other over three centuries. It is unique in that it is the only French National Museum dedicated to France’s relationship to another country. The collections include paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, and photographs, documents, and memorabilia. We collaborate with the Curator and the Direction des Musées de France (DMF) to develop the Museum and help it to realize its full potential by providing financial support for the renovation and expansion of the buildings, development of an advanced audio-visual program and landscaping of the grounds. We also offer exclusive trips and visits to private châteaux, gardens and art collections, we organize benefits, lectures and other events, produce promotional materials and publish a semi-annual newsletter. The American Friends of Blérancourt, Inc. is a non-profit New York corporation with (501)c(3) status with offices in New York and Paris.
