Musée des Amériques – Auch (Americas)

Auch | 32

After several months of building work to update disabled access and rearrange the layout of its collections, the former Jacobin Museum, renamed Musée des Amériques – Auch (The Museum of the Americas, Auch)  opened its doors in October 2019. The refurbishment gave the museum the opportunity to completely rethink the display of its collections.

The Museum founded in 1793 is one of the very first museums to open in France. Today it is based within the former Jacobin convent, a building that has been occupied since the beginning of the fifteenth century up to the Revolution by the religious Dominicans, also known as the Jacobins. The museum has a large variety of collections broken up into 5 large categories :

  • America : The number one collection in France dedicated to Latin American Art and the second largest collection of Pre-Columbian art after the Quai-Branly- Jacques Chirac Museum in Paris.
  • Antiquities : Egyptian and Gallo Roman collections
  • Art from the Middle Ages: stone statuary collection
  • Art and artists from the south west: collection of Auch faience, paintings and sculptures by Gascony artists from the eighteenth to the twentieth century.
  • Gascony folk art : collection of traditional costumes
