  • 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 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 👍😊
