  • The museum is in the old part of town - a fabulous building and extremely interesting. We have returned to Angouleme on 3 separate occasions and always find something new to see.

  • I was sad to find the facade of the cathedral in scaffolding - the whole point of going to Angouleme! The next door was a wonderful garden and the entrance to the museum. Very friendly and helpful...

  • A superb and varied collection. I was impressed by the architectural fragments, fine paintings, the art pottery. The Gallic helmet is a masterpiece craftsmanship, hard to believe it is over two thousand years old. The prehistoric and geological collection will be excellent for children. Friendly and helpful staff and the garden with views of the cathedral was a peaceful oasis. Kept me for three hours but not so big a museum you suffer cultural fatigue!
  • Great museum, ended up spending 3 hours here, so much to see. Well worth a visit.
