Undoubtedly one of the oldest museums in France and identified as such since the sixteenth century, Lectoure’s Archaeology Museum is housed in the imposing vaulted cellars of the Town Hall, a former Bishop’s Palace.
Exhibiting collections of Gallo-Roman archaeological finds discovered on the site of the ancient city or its surrounds, it is above all known for a collection of sacred altars called tauroboliques which date from the second and third century A.D.
Objects and documents from the Gallic and medieval periods make up the rest of the exhibit alongside a depiction of the lives of two famous Lectoure natives, the Maréchal d’Empire Lannes et l’Amiral Boué de Lapeyrère.
The Museum is run under the auspices of the departmental Conservation and heritage authorities and the Museums/Flaran (Department of Gers) and is part of the network of Sites and Museums of the Gers
