Interactive Museum[edit]

In 2021, an interactive museum of Charles Aznavour will be opened at the Aznavour Centre. The 10 museum halls will tell the visitors about key stages of Charles Aznavour's life: from his childhood to worldwide recognition. His personal story will be presented through an audio-guide, recorded by Aznavour. The museum halls will also be functional providing the visitors with the possibilities to record and mix songs, etc.[8]

Aznavour Centre will also have a huge educational and cultural part focusing on three areas: cinema, music and French language.[9]

French Language Teaching[edit]

Aznavour Centre will provide French teaching courses, where in parallel with the traditional methods, a new methodology of French language teaching will be implemented, based on the songs of Charles Aznavour. Thanks to the cooperation with the French Institute, a rich media library will be created in the Centre.
