A beautiful Caillebotte and an impressive beauty chapel and courtroom.
Musée retraçant l'histoire locale mais pas que. La visite commence à l'âge de bronze et évolue jusque au XXème siècle. Un très très bon moment more »Museum tracing local history but not that. The tour begins in the Bronze Age and evolves until the 20th century. A very, very good time
I had a wonderful time in this museum. The display of the art works and artifacts is very well done and integrated perfectly with the building. The collection is marvellous. I would definitely recommend it.
Thoughtfully laid out museum. Good quality exhibits and artifacts. It's small enough to be doable in a couple of hours. Clean and has great restroom facilities.
