Borda Museum

Every year, the Borda museum (housed in the Carmelite chapel) displays several major temporary exhibitions derived from its own holdings (palaeontology and archaeology, science and natural history, fine arts and graphical design, ethnology...). Built by the famous Archaeological and Historical Society of Borda in 1807, the museum owes its name to Jacques-François de Borda (1718-1804), cousin to Jean-Charles, one of the first Prehistoric historians.
