The museum traces the history of Bourges but also has a small Egyptian section. As Bourges had been a Roman settlement, there is a strong Roman section. The building and grounds are , in themselves, worth seeing. Staff extra friendly and helpful

Especially the roman gravestones (stelae) collected from local sites. Paintings a bit grim for my taste but the references to local history very good.

It was a very hot day. The museum is closed during midday. We were a bit early. There was but one bank in the shade. Personal was sitting there. You don't have to offer to the visitors, but it would have been nice. We waited till 14.00. The staff did not open the doors because they had not finished smoking. Maybe that is the custom in France? I found it rather rude. The collection has few very nice items. ( flemish tapestry!) but a lot of rather mediocre paintings some in terrible. condition. In retrospective i wished I had chosen another museum

Gorgeous bronze sanglier in the flowered courtyard caught our eyes, and a delicious spicy smell of herbs caught our attention. we went in, and we were blown off our feet!! Archaeological displays of iron and bronze artefacts – chains and votives and swords and axe heads. And then pottery and statues. And glass and steles and murals and mosaics – down several levels. And then up past massive and beautiful iron fire-backs to medieval rooms of alabaster monks. And on to paintings and an Egyptian display – it went on and on. we loved it and only left becasue the clock struck 12 and we were thrown out - charmingly! - for lunchtime. well worth a visit.

The Musee de Berry is a small Fine Art museum, which also includes some collections from the town including Roman artifacts, medieval pieces, a small egyptian collection and some fairly undistinguished paintings. Best things in the museum are the sarcophagus that was donated by a local administrator who had served in Egypt, and some beautiful medieval items - some of them from Nottingham - in the medieval room. The entrance to the museum through an enclosed garden is extremely attractive.
