Presentation

Founded in 1796, L'IMAGERIE D'EPINAL is the last remaining imaging factory in the world. Today, the adventure of creating images inspired by an exceptional iconographic collection still goes on! Its historic workshops can be visited all year round and the visitors are guided through an original and unique interactive journey through 220 years of images.

 

It has built up a priceless heritage, with tens of thousands of images created from woodcuts and stone drawings: religious or military images, tales and legends, songs, news, educational plates, games, comics, etc. It is now experiencing a real revival, continuing the adventure of image creation in the 21st century.

Located in beautiful listed buildings, its historic workshops can be visited all year round. This is an opportunity for you to enjoy an amazing, immersive and multimedia experience with the help of dedicated touch tablets (Histopad®) which are multilingual (FR, EN, GE) and easy to use. You can discover the different areas, 220 years of illustrated history, a fleet of old machines unique in France (including the famous Aquatype of 1905 capable of colouring in 9 colours), the stages of production of the famous images... You will learn, for example, that at its peak, L'IMAGERIE D'EPINAL distributed more than 12 million plates, in several languages, both in America and in the Russia of the Tsars. The tour ends with the 300 m2 shop and a fine selection of Images d'Épinal, as well as numerous gifts and related products (books, games, objects, decorations, gourmet products, etc.).
