The museum is located in the potters' quarter, in the former abbey of Notre-Dame. Following renovations and expansion, specially suited areas hold the ceramics and glassware and the varied collections.
Avallon, Musée de l'Avallonnais Founded in 1862 the museum was installed in the former 17th century college. Known for its collections of mineralogy, paleontology and its rich archeological material, the Avallon Museum is changing in order to exhibit collections brought together by various the art lovers and artists who created it, and to accept new gifts. In particular it offers the public works of the painter Georges Rouault, of the goldsmith Jean Després, and of the sculptor Pierre Vigoureux.
Noyers-sur-Serein, Musée d'Art Naïf
Son of the artist Kikoine and a painter himself, Jacques Yankel donated his extraordinary collection of naive and popular paintings. The poetic 18th century college houses these works as well as the rare curiosity box from Bresse and the views of some remarkable artists of exotic worlds (R. Nivelt and H. Farey). Contemporary "marginal" artists leave their works there, as do painters who have stayed in Tonnerois such as Kikoine, Kremègne and others.
