  • Installed in the Cujas Hotel, a superb building from the 16th century, this Museum presents archaeological collections and a few paintings and sculptures. Fortunately, in July 2017, a temporary exhibition was interesting with, in particular, 3 beautiful busts in bronze.

  • Unwelcoming staff, which seems hallucinated that youth come to cultivate. Despite this, we continue the tour. But it is a total disappointment for the price paid. We recommend instead the Palais Jacques heart.

  • Good Museum, free the first Sunday of the month which is top for access to culture. Negative on the so-called part medieval at the entrance which when we visit is actually a part of the Christian religion. But big positive on the Egyptian part with a mummy worthy of major museums real!

  • ds Museum a beautiful building: the hotel Cujas, historical monument of 1515. I love bcq the ground floor with the room of the stelae, archaeological finds and the plates of chimneys. A big favorite also for arrays of the 1st floor where portraits of Jacques Cœur and Jean Baffier, saw figures known to Bourges. I was able to admire a sculpture of Rodin (Eve).
