The Scriptorial is the museum of manuscripts of Mont Saint-Michel, located in Avranches (Manche). Opened in August 2006, Scriptorial is located away from the city walls of Avranches.

Chief town of the district, in 1791 Avranches receives custody of a literary deposit of more than 4,000 volumes from the abbey of Mont Saint-Michel. Among these books, 199 manuscripts, some dating back to the tenth century, are now the reputation of Avranches, the city of manuscripts. Twenty other manuscripts of the abbey only are scattered across the world.
