Le musée Sainte-Croix

Archaeological funds and paintings on the regional history illustrate the major events in the history of Poitou. The collections is initially due to the work of Father Gibault and the Society of Antiquaries of the West, founded in 1834. The museum has since expanded its collections.

The Department of Fine Arts has a large number of representative works of the nineteenth century art movements such as Symbolism (Odilon Redon, Gustave Moreau), Orientalism (Chassériau), the new Classicism (David Gauffier). The modern and contemporary art are also present (Bonnard, Sisley, Mondrian). Many school activities (creative workshop, teaching aids) and cultural events (guided tours, documentary films, meetings) are offered.
