Long Description:
[FR] Autrefois résidence du Général Bertrand, fidèle de Napoléon, ce bel hôtel particulier du XVIIIe siècle est aujourd'hui un musée dont chacune des 26 salles réserve son lot de surprises : la volière ramenée de Sainte-Hélène, l'original en plâtre du Sakuntala de Claudel, un cabinet de curiosités et d'égyptologie, des collections Empire, des peintures flamandes & hollandaises, des œuvres gallo-romaines & médiévales… Par ailleurs, le musée propose deux expositions temporaires par an. Les siècles défilent, incarnés par ce patrimoine varié dont la beauté, la rareté et la diversité émerveillent.
