Description

In 1794, Châlons' library took in items confiscated by the revolutionary courts and, thus, the Muséum Départemental came into being, one of the oldest museums in France. In the gallery of paintings (15C-20C), note, in particular, Winter Landscape by Joos de Momper (16C) and Portrait of Cazotte by Perronneau (18C). You will also find here objets d'art, sculptures by Rodin and an ornithology cabinet, with almost 2 000 stuffed birds from all over the world.
