Port Boinot in Niort: annual welcome

Port Boinot was once the former chamois and glove factories, a symbol of the city's industry Niortaise. However, when the glove industry began to decline in the 1970s, these buildings were abandoned becoming an industrial wasteland. In 2010, the city of Niort decided to give a new life in this place by transforming it all keeping its soul to preserve its history.

After a complete renovation, the old tannery factories have been converted into a Tourist Office on the ground floor with the “roaming and hiking counter”, a museum space on the 1st floor dedicated to the heritage which makes up the identity of the territory and finally on the 2nd floor, an exhibition room. Access to each floor of the building is free and accessible to all.
