The collections are compared with pieces of haute couture and bear witness to the continuities that permeate the history of fashion, as well as to the porous nature of the boundaries between artistic creations and popular cultures. Designers like Paul Poiret, have not ceased to call upon the forms and imaginary elements associated with regional costume, inviting a cross-over between the two fields.The new perspective that contemporary creation allows us to take on costumes is matched by the historical depth that they offer to the works of the couturiers, in a fruitful dialogue between heritage and contemporary.

Comprising one million objects and documents, the Mucem's collections are preserved and made accessible at the Centre for Conservation and Resources (CCR) It opened its doors in 2013 during European Heritage Days.   
In September 2023, the CCR celebrates its 10th anniversary and presents 110 objects, photographs, archives and books from the Mucem.
These tell the stories of people's lives and social events, providing an opportunity to reflect on our contemporary practices, and what yesteryear's society would have made of our own

The Mucem puts its network of partner museums in the spotlight of another long-term European project: "Alexandria: (re)activating common urban imaginaries" (ALEX) aims to take a fresh look at the many challenges faced by the arts and heritage sectors, through the symbolic and historical prism of the city of Alexandria and its influences on urban development in the Mediterranean and beyond.

European Friends of Museums Day on Sunday, October 8, 2023.

A million museum enthusiasts across Europe, united in national federations of Friends of Museums within a worldwide Federation, are inaugurating the annual European Friends of Museums Day on Sunday, October 8, 2023.

The aim of this event is to celebrate and raise the profile of Friends of Museums in Europe on a single day, when each association will highlight the actions it carries out throughout the year to pass on their passion and help raise the profile of their museums. Six European federations have already confirmed their participation, with a common logo and identical communications: Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Norway and Spain. The logo identifying this day is a swirl of stars inspired by the European flag, but tinted green to signify the urgency of the environmental theme, a sine qua non condition for the conservation and enrichment of cultural heritage. Held every second Sunday in October, the European Friends of Museums Day aims to
