The Agathois Jules Baudou Museum was founded in 1699 by Monseigneur Fouquet and is located in one of the beautiful seventeenth-century Agde townhouses, the  Hôtel de la Charité . The museum is based around the arts and traditions of the Agathé city that was born of the  Héreault and the Mediterranean Sea.
Room by room through the galleries that were renovated between 2011 and 2012, you will learn about the city of Agde from antiquity to the present day.

The collections revolve around three major themes :

  • Folklore and Daily Life : reconstructed interiors, traditional costumes and lace, jousting…
  • Land and Sea : model boats, the cabin of the Capitaine, navigational instruments, vine and wine…
  • Furniture and the arts : Art Nouveau furniture by Léon Cauvy that came from the château Laurens, Far Eastern art, paintings…

Magnificent Asian artwork,  Japanese armour, Katana, Netsuke, and the objects coming from Africa bear witness to the importance of the exchanges and contacts with the wider world.

The museum is the historic seat of the Escolau Dau Sarret, the local Agde scholarly association that initially assembled the Musem’s collections.
