This local cultural facility seeks to educate and inform visitors about the development of the town and raise awareness of architecture and heritage. What makes a town, district or building valuable? Or, more generally speaking, what makes it unique and special?
The CIAP de Chambéry is a place of exchange at the frontier of everything that defines the town, from its past to the future.

The Hôtel de Cordon is a lively space, with many activities going on:
- starting point for guided tours of the old centre
- educational activity and conference room
- specialist architecture and heritage library (by appointment only) and office of the town's lead architect for protected zones
- permanent exhibition about the town and its heritage: heritage conservation, the housing in Chambéry, the development of the town, and more.
- temporary exhibitions
