Museum Information

Musée de Millau et des Grands Causses

Millau | 12

The museum is housed in an eighteenth-century townhouse. The exhibition is spread out over 30 rooms that display a variety of collections showcasing different aspects of the city at the centre of the Grands Causses.
The collections allow visitors to learn about the southern Aveyron’s geological past. Ammonites, dinosaurs including the first intact elasmosaur found in France which dates back 180 million years can be viewed. The abundant production of moulded earthenware pottery that came from the Graufesenque workshops all bear witness to Millau’s history from the first century to the present day.
The tannery and glove-making industries have been active in Millau since the Middle Ages. The process starts with treated animal skins and goes right through the glove production chain. Skilled craftsmen and women size, sew and decorate the different parts of the glove. There are hundreds of ancient and modern day gloves on show which reflect the rich creativity of this immortal fashion accessory.
Several of the museum’s exhibition rooms are reserved for temporary shows that are held throughout the year.
