This “Museum of France” is located inside one of the oldest civilian structures of Provins, the “Roman House“.

Before entering this architectural monument, be sure to admire its 12th-century façade and magnificent window set in diamonds.

Inside, you’ll find invaluable collections from archaeological excavations in Provins and its surrounding areas that date from prehistoric times and run through the Renaissance to the 19th century.

Among the notable exhibition items housed here are the exceptional treasured remnants of Saint Quiriace Church (golden monstrances, a trinity icon from the 15th century and Saint Edme’s chasuble made of silk lampas from the 13th century).
The museum also features sculptures, paintings and rare objects, such as a baby hatch used to abandon orphans at church doors.
