The flat in which Claude-Joseph Rouget de Lisle was born in 1760, which has since been transformed, is located at 24 rue du Commerce. Two thirds of it was donated by Mr. André Lançon in order to set up a cultural centre dedicated to the author and his work, which was inaugurated in 1996. Since 2011, this museum space has been awarded the "Maison des Illustres" label.
The documents and objects displayed in the first room recall the biography of Claude-Joseph Rouget de Lisle: his origins and childhood, his studies and short military career, the writing of La Marseillaise, his artistic work (texts, music, among others), his last years divided between the Jura and the Paris region.
The second room evokes the posterity of the man and the anthem as well as the tributes paid to them over the past two centuries. Before entering the third room, the visitor is invited to listen to 4 of the 99 versions of La Marseillaise, sung on the 5 continents since 1793.
This third and final space will house one or more objects or works temporarily: every year, it will house an exceptional "guest" closely linked to Rouget de Lisle and/or La Marseillaise.
