Port Boinot in Niort: annual reception

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

After a complete renovation, the former tannery factories have been converted into a tourist office on the ground floor with the "comptoir des itinérances et randonnées", a museographic space on the 1st floor dedicated to the heritage that makes up the territory's identity and finally on the 2nd floor, an exhibition room. Access to each floor of the building is free and accessible to all.
