This museum is amazing when one considers it is located in a provincial town. There is a superb collection of 'Religious' art from the 16th and 17th century, located in an attractive building all for €6!!!. A wonderful way to spend a morning.

This is in the Abbe St Vast, adjacent to the cathedral, within easy walking distance of the town centre. Not very well signed, we got into the huge modern library that shares the building first. Admission is 10E, so we expected lots to see. There...More

There is an entrance fee (€7/€4), although the museum is free on the first Sunday of each month. Access to the ground floor is okay but I'm not sure about the upper floor.
