Launched during the 2007 Presidential campaign by Nicolas Sarkozy; then candidate; the project of creating a museum of French history; after tentative beginnings; started 2010 taking on a more definitive shape. A scientific advisory committee worked on defining its profile and the new institution was set up in Paris in January 2012. But its existence was short due to the fact that the new political majority decided; after having won the Presidential and legislative elections in the Spring of 2012; to shut the project down. Where did the idea of a « Maison de l’Histoire de France » come from? Which debates did the project arouse? Which orientations were drafted by the scientific committee? How can one explain the sudden decision to close the project down? Those are the questions adressed in this paper.
