The Association
Occitanie Musées is the Association of Curators and Scientific Personnel of the Occitanie Museums. It brings together scientific staff from the Museums of France and cultural and heritage establishments in the Occitanie region. It integrates more than a hundred professionals in all areas of museum activity (management, conservation, mediation, documentation etc.). The Association is the regional arm of the AGCCPF (The national Association of curators and Museum professionals and the public heritage sites of France)

Located in a former silk spinning mill near the town’s old Roman bridge, the Cévennes Museum is spread over three floors and aims to introduce visitors to the geography of the Southern Cévennes region. The exhibitions highlight the lives of local inhabitants throughout the ages.

The ground floor presents temporary exhbitions and there is a room dedicated to the trades that were carried out during the past in the southern Cévennes.

On the first floor, the ethnology room gives a glimpse into life in the Cévennes valley and chalk plains.

The André Chamson room on the second floor showcases the life and works of this native scholar through his writings and manuscripts. A wander through the Adrienne Durand-Tullou room takes visitors on a journey through the long history of the southern Cévennes.
