Sainte-Croix Museum

Recommended
This rich museum, occupying a building on the site of the old Abbey of Sainte-Croix, contains three sections. The regional archaeology collection has pieces from the Paleolithic to the Middle Ages. Artistic and historical views of Poitiers are illustrated by artwork such as the polychrome wood Grand'Goule and 17C Dutch paintings. The Fine Arts section ranges from older paintings to 19C and 20C artistic movements, and continues with sculptures including a series of exceptional works by Rodin and Camille Claudel.
