History Museum Specialty Museum
Discover a diverse array of artwork alongside ancient artifacts at Musee de l'Abbaye. The modern building sits just a stone's throw away from Saint Claude Cathedral and boasts an impressive array of paintings and drawings from the late 19th century to the 1980s, with a particularly strong School of Paris collection. The basement of the museum has a different focus, exhibiting archaeological relics from the Condat Abbey (today the cathedral). Here, you can learn about some of France's oldest monasteries. Complete your visit with a trip to the museum's small but picturesque garden.
