Museum of Millau and the Grands Causses

Interesting
The Millau and Grands Causses museum houses a remarkable collection of earthenware from the neighbouring Gallo-Roman potters' village (Graufesenque). The first floor Museum of Leather and Gloves presents the town's two traditional industries: leatherworking and glove-making (audio-visual display, tools and magnificent pairs of evening gloves). The museum also boasts a palaeontology section (contains the skeleton of a Tournemire plesiosaurus).
