Terms of visit

From 21 July 2021, the Health Pass is extended to all leisure and cultural venues with more than 50 people.

In accordance with government directives, access to Lafayette Anticipations for all adults will be based on the presentation of a Health Pass in the form of a QR Code in paper format or downloaded in the TousAntiCovid Carnet application:  

- Vaccination certificate  

- Or certificate of negative RT-PCR or antigenic test less than 72 hours old  

- Or RT-PCR or positive antigenic test certificate of at least 11 days and less than 6 months old  

The conformity of the Pass will be checked at the entrance of the Foundation on the ground floor for all persons entering the building, including those who only pass through the Foundation without accessing the exhibition spaces.
