  • 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?
