About the OECD

"Journées du patrimoine" at the OECD

 

‌OECD opens its doors

Visuel - L'Atelier Cartographik

On 15-16 September, OECD will join other historical landmarks in opening its doors for the 35th edition of “European Heritage Days” under the theme “the Art of Sharing.”

This is the only time of the year the general public can visit OECD Headquarters and the historic Château de la Muette.

Visitors will learn not only about the OECD’s historical past but also the key role the OECD plays in helping countries across the world address today’s global policy challenges.

Visitors will learn about the Organisation’s long tradition of international cooperation while visiting the conference centre, gardens and Château.
