Le Musée d'Aquitaine

The Musée d'Aquitaine in Bordeaux brings together objects and documents related to the history of Bordeaux and Aquitaine, from prehistory to the contemporary period.

It brings together the Jean-Moulin National Centre in Bordeaux and the Goupil Museum, whose collection it preserves.

In the 16th century, the site of the Musée d'Aquitaine housed the convent of the Feuillants. Destroyed during the Revolution, it became a high school, which burned down in 1871, and then a university.

In 1960, the Lapidary Museum (created in 1783 by the Bordeaux Academy) changed its primary vocation and brought together the collections of other museums (Prehistoric and Ethnographic Museum, Museum of Arms and Ancient Objects). It was renamed the Musée d'Aquitaine in 1963.
