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 houses exhibits from the Palaeolithic to the Middle Ages. The Fine Arts section ranges from older paintings to 19C and 20C artistic movements. Artistic and historical views of Poitiers are illustrated by artwork such as the polychrome wood Grand'Goule, while the Sculpture section is home to a superb collection of works by Rodin and Camille Claudel.
