Ariège Regional Museum

Housed in the spacious lower section of the castle, the vast collection of military and hunting weapons and arms serves to remind us of the fort's original vocation and brings to mind Foix back in an era of knights and fairy tales. The tour also includes major prehistoric collections taken from digs in 60 of the 300 caves in the Ariège region.
