A "Colombier en héritage" tells the backstage of the rescue and restoration of the Colombier: an amazing story gathered in a few panels full of details on the conditions of action of each of the actors.
Born of a redundant questioning that inevitably pushes many visitors to wonder:
-to find in Créteil "a similar building, both rural, beautiful, impressive, unique, quirky, unusual..."
-the fact that he was not registered earlier,
- the fact that at the time it was not included in the building works "dare a real development",
-the fact that it had to be moved"it’s madness",
-the work of the actors in its identical restoration"of good work",
this exhibition evokes an adventure, fifty years old, whose unfolding, almost improbable, events knew how to bring together the right people, in the right place and at the right time...
It was also designed as a tribute and a thank you to all those who experienced this adventure.
You will be welcomed in the lower room of the Colombier. Allow 30 to 40 minutes of visit.

Former dovecote of the seigneurial manor of Créteil, built at the end of the fourteenth century. In 1672, the dovecote becomes property of the Hôtel-Dieu. Moved in 1972, it was restored following the drawings of Viollet-le-Duc, by the Society of History and Archaeology "Les Amis de Créteil". It has a lower room with "foot" and a room "high" lined with boulins to which one accesses by a staircase taken in the thickness of the wall.
