Musée de la fortification:
Opened in 1988, the Fortifications Museum is designed to demonstrate the richness, diversity and interest of the heritage of the Meuse area in the field of military architecture, from its origins to the end of the 18th century: models of defences, old weapons, aerial views of fortified sites in the Meuse, and much more.
Musée Jules Bastien Lepage : Museum renovated in 2007. The refurbishment has enabled the premises to be brought up to standard, as well as facilitating a new display. This has made it possible to take works (mainly drawings), bought over the last ten years and
never exhibited, out of the reserve collections.
In addition, the collection has been completed by deposits from the Lorraine Museum in Nancy, and the Rodin Museum in Paris.
The museum consists of three separate areas:
-A general introduction to the life and works of the artist,
-An iconography room of drawings and fragile
-An art gallery.
A presentation of the artist’s works on an interactive screen helps to reveal the diversity of his major canvases, the majority of which are kept abroad.
