  • I am so glad we chose to visit this museum with its ancient sculptures and more modern work. The artifacts and general displays added meaning to how the sculptures were produced. 
  • Restored a few years ago the fenaille Museum includes some admirable archaeological pieces found in the Department. For a small fee must discover the finest collection of statues-menhirs in France.

  • Here we found a pretty large collection on the history of Rodez/Rujerga and local archaeology. Surprising that there was so much in the surrounding area many menhirs. Also a large collection of sculptures from different periods.

  • I like the Museum, the building is very beautiful, especially the inner courtyard. He visited fast, perhaps too fast.

  • One of the most beautiful museums of France: sober, relevant and enjoyable. And especially for its incredible collection of statues-menhirs very well highlighted. Superb!
