Musée Baron Martin

Gray | Archéologie - Beaux-Arts
Price
€4 - €5.5
Presentation
Located on the site of the fortress of the dukes of Burgundy, in the pleasure palace refurbished by the Count of Provence, the museum overlooks the Saone. Founded in 1903, it presents a rich collection of archaeological and artistic works from the Middle Ages to the early twentieth century.

The castle, declared "national asset" after the Revolution, was purchased by Alexander Martin, who lived there until 1864. The house was purchased by the city in 1901 and turned into a museum in 1903.
On the ground floor, the museum presents its permanent collection of sculptures from the late Middle Ages to the post-impressionist paintings from the late nineteenth century, in the atmosphere of the charming rooms of the eighteenth century. The vaults are, for their part, a collection of local archeology. The floor of the castle is devoted to temporary exhibitions.
In ancient tombs archeology takes place locally, and a collection of Greek vases of the fourth and fifth centuries.
