  • Beautiful museum ranging from the Roman period to the 20th century Rich heritage of bronzes, mosaics, ceramics, furniture and paintings With some masterpieces: Virgin of Chancellor Rollin, Eve and tomb fragment of The Cathedral of Saint Lazarus

  • The posters had stopped us. What a disappointment at the finish! A half-room of bled-brac without interest. Fortunately, the permanent exposure is more substantial and interesting. Maybe the lights should be reviewed because sometimes they prevent a good vision of the paintings. But above all this museum is absolutely not accessible to the disabled, which is really prohibitive and almost insulting to them. A museum keeps a piece of human history at its level and everyone must be able to appropriate it! In the 21st century it is a shame not to think about accessibility.

  • From the cathedral to the museum there are only a few steps...... (Heritage Day). About twenty rooms spread over several floors (a little hard for the legs ...) There are remnants of Bronze Gallo-Roman antiquity, statuettes, tools, pottery and beautiful mosaics. Romanesque statues and paintings by local artists, in particular the portrait of Cardinal Jean Rolin and many other works by contemporary artists. Some of the cathedral's bas-reliefs are also on display.

  • Cute little museum. Lots of rooms with paintings, sculptures and a helpful staff. Whole visit takes about 2 hours.
  • Roman History, Medieval and Fine Art museum in the former home of Nicolas Rolin. Amazing mosaics and great temporary exhibitions. Extension planned to present more artefacts within the old panopticon (circular prison) and the former tribunal.
  • Beautiful, meaningful and very interesting.
  • Beautiful Museum with lots of different things, you start with Roman times and then walk through history to the more modern time. Also many beautiful paintings, also from Bishop Rolin, because the museum is located in its beautiful chateau. Absolutely Recommended 👍😊

  • Very rich and beautiful Museum!! Certainly not accessible for people with reduced mobility.. but the enlargement project could help with that?
