This museum claimed to be the "first museum of the village" when it was opened in 1938 by a scholar of many talents, poet, painter, historian and geologist, Victor Gautron du Coudray, who donated many items patiently collected over a life dedicated to the service of his native Nievre region.
Musée de Bibracte - Saint-Léger-sous-Beuvray The museum is located at the foot of Mount Beuvray, where once was ancient Bibracte, capital of the Haedui, a Gallic people. It is both a window onto ongoing archeological research and onto the overall Celtic civilisation.
In the 16th century the "superb palace of the Rolin" held the entire attention of guests to the Haedui city.
Château-Chinon, Musée du Costume The mansion of the Buteau-Ravizy family, dating from the 18th century, has since 1992 housed a major collection of some 5,000 costumes, the majority of which come from the Dardy collection that had been acquired by the town of Château-Chinon.
Château-Chinon, Musée du Septennat Presents from around the world received by President François Mitterrand in his two terms are on show at the former Convent of St. Claire, and represent a veritable Ali Baba's cave, and serve as an invitation to a voyage of discovery of the world's cultures.
