Fine Art Museum

This museum, founded in 1844, is established in the former episcopal palace. Originally devoted to European painting, it has been enriched by the collections from the Orbigny-Bernon museum, closed in 2012, and works of art and antiques rescued from a fire in the town hall in 2013. The palace also has a contemporary art section, where temporary exhibitions are held.
