The Marey Museum has been closed since 2005 at the request of the management of the Museums of France.
A preventative conservation and restoration programme has been undertaken in this period. Opening the Museum at a new site that would allow it to display its collections in much larger areas and according to modern museum techniques is under consideration.
A selection of chronophotographs by Etienne-Jules Marey and of photographs-collages by Paolo Gioli can be seen at the Beaune Fine Arts Museum.
Works about Marey are on sale in the shop of the Beaune Fine Arts Museum.
