Carcassonne Fine Arts Museum

The Museum of Fine Arts offers a refuge with sensitive charm, a counterpoint to the grandiose silhouette of the medieval city.

It was in 1845 that the Society of Arts and Sciences offered the city of Carcassonne a set of 102 paintings for its museum. At the origin of this society, a Commission of Arts and Sciences had been founded in 1836. Thereafter, in addition to the deposits of the Louvre museum and the State, the donations of generous Carcassonnais continued the enrichment of the collections with in particular donations and bequests: Courtejaire (1876, 1880 and 1884), Coste-Reboulh (1892), Chénier and Raynaud (1893), and finally in the 20th century Delteil (1984), Pla (1990) and Cahuzac (1995).

The collections of the Carcassonne Fine Arts Museum present a rich panorama of Western painting from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. The visitor can also discover a collection of earthenware as well as tapestries and works of art.
