  • Surprising to find such a service on Poitiers. Accessible, well-designed, this museum is full of archaeological treasures and the Rodin exhibition ends to occupy an afternoon. Congratulations

  • One very nice Experience to visit a place that show you how to build a people, highly recommended.
  • A museum wide and clean. Free for students and less than 26 years at my last visit. Beautiful exhibition of paintings and large figurines. We get lost in the Museum to Miss galleries of exhibits with a half floors. Closed on Sundays, it is Poitiers.
