  • 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.
  • Another great little archeological museum. Well worth the visit if only to admire the Bellerophon mosaic
  • Cute little museum. Lots of rooms with paintings, sculptures and a helpful staff. Whole visit takes about 2 hours.
  • The museum has a mixed collection of local historical artwork and donated work, with the high point being the Roman artefacts. Which are amazing.
  • Unexpectedly nice! Really worthwhile to visit.
