PSA Peugeot Citroën will open several of its sites to the public on 15 and 16 September for the 29th European Heritage Days. This year's theme is "Hidden Heritage".
During the two-day event, the public will be treated to a behind-the-scenes view of a manufacturing Group that boasts two hundred years of history.
Visitors will be able to choose from among the following sites:
On 16 September, Sochaux will hold a "bicycle through the plant" open day for adults and children during which employees will present the plant's different workshops.
PSA Peugeot Citroën's Terre Blanche Archives in Hérimoncourt, near Sochaux, will present its operations and resources, giving visitors a chance to discover the automobile industry's pioneering giants through a rare and astonishing collection that offers a window onto automobile production since the early 20th century.
The Conservatoire Citroën brand heritage centre, home to the world's largest collection of Citroën vehicles, will organise guided tours of thousands of objects and documents tied to the brand's history.
The Peugeot Museum of Adventure in Sochaux will also be open, showcasing the brand's heritage with displays and vintage car collections spanning two centuries of manufacturing history. For the European Heritage Days, the museum will present the cars featured in the "Taxi" movies, as well as Peugeot 206 models used in advertising.
Finally, Collection de l'Aventure Automobile à Poissy (CAAPY) will organise guided tours to discover 70 flagship vehicles that have rolled off the Poissy plant's production lines under the Ford, Simca, Chrysler France, Talbot and Peugeot names.
