Mission of remembrance

Via the content of our exhibitions, establishing a collection of archives (part of which can be consulted in our Resource Centre), holding colloquia and putting on temporary exhibitions are all part of this mission.

La Coupole was also behind the Livre des 9 000 déportés de France à Mittelbau-Dora (Book of the 9,000 deportees to Mittelbau-Dora from France), published by Cherche Midi. This work, the fruit of two decades of research, sets down on paper a significant part of the history of the Deportations from the Nord-Pas de Calais.


Mission to spread scientific knowledge

Via the 3D Planetarium, our exhibitions and events revolving around space travel and the Universe.

Mission of education

Combining the disciplines of History and Science, each year our education department concocts a range of activities for schools and teachers. La Coupole is a favourite destination for schools in the Hauts-de-France region, and is visited each year by thousands of schoolchildren from the region and further afield.


Mission to foster good citizenship

By upholding some basic values for maintaining social harmony, La Coupole strives to defend the principles of democracy and the Republic, embodied in its “Centre for Information and Awareness Raising in Education and Good Citizenship”.


In accordance with its missions, La Coupole seeks to initiate actions for the development of partnerships with structures that share the same values.
