Musée de la Castre

Recommended
A fabulous collection of musical instruments and rooms displaying art from the Near East, Oceania and pre-Columbian America. This museum was founded a year before the Musée de l'Homme (museum of mankind) in Paris after distant expeditions undertaken by learned adventurers in the 19C. The rooms also feature some delightful Orientalist paintings. The view from the top of the square tower is unrivalled!
