Regional Museum of Gap

Interesting
Situated in the Pépinière public gardens, the museum is of interest for several reasons. It has an excellent archeology section with the Stele of Briançon and exceptional bronze jewellery. Ceramics are illustrated by pieces made in Moustiers and Queyras is represented by splendid carved furniture. Finally, do not miss the mausoleum of François de Bonne, the Duke of Lesdiguières, sculpted by Jacob Richier (1585-1640).
