Christian Dior Museum

In Granville, in Normandy, not far from Mont-Saint-Michel, Christian Dior's childhood home stands on the cliff, facing the Channel Islands.

In 1906, Christian Dior's parents bought this bourgeois house with a winter garden, located in a protective park.
Christian Dior is particularly fond of this place. When in 1932, shortly after the death of Madeleine Dior, the industrial father was ruined by the crisis, the property was put up for sale.
Purchased by the city of Granville, its garden will be open to the public in 1938.
In 1997, the villa became a "Christian Dior museum", the only "museum in France" entirely devoted to a couturier.
