Artemisia Museum, so much more than just a museum!
Artemisia museum is a project that was initiated by the Université Européenne des Saveurs & des Senteurs – UESS (European University of Scents and Flavours) and is a training, research and promotion centre dedicated to the valorisation of aromatic and cosmetic plants. Located in the prestigious Couvent des Cordeliers, Artemisia museum is also a venue for exceptional seminars.
