Between eclecticism & encyclopedism, discovering local history!
The Charbonneau-Lassay Museum houses rich and varied collections largely bequeathed by local scholar Louis Charbonneau-Lassay (1871-1946): archaeological objects from the territory and elsewhere, old books, swords and firearms. Today, its collection coexists with 19th century canvases, emblematic pieces of Loudun popular art, not to mention the astonishing collection of African art, including in particular imposing ritual masks.
A Museum in the oldest district of Loudun.
Housed in a former 18th century private mansion, nestled in the oldest district of the city, the Museum stands alongside listed historical monuments, such as the Porte du Martray or the Saint-Hilaire church – a remarkable Gothic building. .
Open from April to December
