Museum Information

Musée de Vulliod Saint-Germain

Pézenas | 34

Reopening of the museum February 2024

The townhouse where the museum is based gives a rare glimpse into the interior space that the Countess of Saint Germain decorated at the threshold between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The rich reception rooms are decorated in the style of the time and display the tapestries produced in the seventeenth century by the Aubusson studios which represent the conquests of Alexander the Great.

On show are:

  • rich pieces of seventeenth and eighteenth-century furniture with Louis XIII cabinets, chairs, armchairs, sofas, desks and chests that illustrate the historical, regional furniture trends from the sixteenth century to the end of the seventeenth century.
  • works of art from the seventeenth to the nineteenth century – sculptures, paintings, water colours, drawings, gouaches, pastels, engravings and oil paintings.
  • A room is dedicated to an eighteenth-century pottery collection with remarkable examples of pottery from amongst other places, de Moustier, Montpellier and Marseille .

The museum owns various objects that relate to the time Molière spent in Pezenas notably the famous “observatory” armchair in which he sat when he paid a visit to his friend the barber, Gély.
