Inside view

Archaeology, coins and fine art

The permanent exhibition offers a tour for remembering the living environment, funerary practices from the past to contemporary times.

Among the displayed collections, it is important to note an exceptional set from a mausoleum, of the late 1st - early 2nd century, built by a rich Gallo-Roman family who lived in Sisteron during the High Empire.


The specificity of the site, a crossroads conducible to trade relations, is highlighted by the different moneys discovered that help recreating the exchanges between local peoples and Marseille inhabitants during the second century BC.  

A rich iconography of the city with drawings, etchings and watercolors show the evolution of Sisteron.

Rarities are also displayed: beautiful pottery of the sixteenth century, medieval capitals with carved characters.

Finally, the visit would not be complete without mentioning Paul Arene, a few of whose personal belongings and writings are preserved.


 Museum classified "Museum of France Label ".
