  • This museum summarizes thousands of year history of Rouergue. The first stories are told by the famous sculpted menhirs, then it's more classic but well put in value. The entrance to the Museum is coupled to two others of Rodez, which relieves the famous Museum. If you make a detour to see the latter, take the time to visit some beautiful downtown street and enter this beautiful old building whose interior architecture worth a visit! See

  • When visiting the city of Rodez, we want to make a visit to the Fenaille Museum. It's a museum with interesting historical pieces, but what I most liked to see is the beautiful display of menhirs that have there. reading and watching you learn a little more about these legendary stones and how they were used by the ancient inhabitants of the French lands.

  • I loved this museum. Start with the 3rd floor, then we go down to the present time. This museum shows the archaeological wealth of the region. The menhirs are absolutely to see.

  • Very nice Museum on the Aveyron from the origins collection rare and important of sculpted menhirs (see photos I put in post). Temporary exhibitions are also very interesting to do if you want to better know the local history. Beware the entry ticket sales coupled with Soulages Museum and the. Museum of fine arts, so plan some time for everything to do.
