If you are interested in archeology and pre-history then this museum is worth going to. They had a special exhibition on pre-history on at the time we visited which had translations into English accompanying the displays. The permanent exhibitions were all in French.

Housed in an amazing building. Start on the top floor and work your way down to the basement. If you like prehistory and Roman artefacts then you are in for a treat.

This free museum is quite well done in a small space. Well explained specimens of historic and prehistoric culture abound.The grotto at the very lowest level is totally fascinating.

We called in because we were following the Owl's Trail. It seemed interesting, though as the descriptions were only in French we didn't stay as long as we might have.
