Museum of Art and History



The Museum of Art and History in Lisieux is located in one of the town's last-remaining half-timbered houses.

A certified "Musée de France", it reopened its doors in 2013 to offer a brand new scenographic display.

The museum offers a chronological journey through the history of Lisieux, from the town's origins to the present day: from the Gallo-Roman to the medieval and classical city, via its textile industry, illustrious figures, reconstruction...

Two specific themes are also covered: the Bishops of Lisieux and typical local inhabitations.

The town's fascinating history is portrayed via over 300 objects, paintings, photographs...

Mise en place des mesures sanitaires et des distanciations, adaptation du parcours de visite, port du masque obligatoire et fermeture hebdomadaire du site pour permettre une quarantaine sanitaire de 40 heures. Accès limité à 10 personnes simultanément.
