Ok small museum

As others have said, it needs a lift. That being said, it's an ok small museum concentrating on La Rochelle. There are lots of old views of the city and surrounding area.

Excellent permanent displays in very large villa in town centre. Very interesting collection related to the slave trade and wonderful temporary B & W photographic exhibition of portraits of people from around the world

In addition to other odds and ends, they have large collections of the works of Fromentin and Bouguereau, both local boys.
