Housed in the former Présidial (judicial tribunal) which opens out onto the streets of the lower part of the city, the Carcassonne Fine Arts Museum presents a rich panorama of  Western painting from the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries featuring the works of Chardin, Rigaud, Van-Goyen, Teniers, Corot, Courbet, Marquet, etc.)
Here visitors can also learn about the ceramics collections from Moustiers, Marseille and Toulouse as well as works of art.

These collections represent a nineteenth-century donation of paintings by the Society of Arts and Sciences to the Museum of the City of Carcassonne. In addition, besides loans from the Louvre and the State, generous gifts from local Carcassonne residents have enriched the communal heritage : Courtejaire, Coste-Reboulh, Chénier and Raynaud, Delteil, Pla and Cahuzac.
Since 1985, thanks to the interest of the City in its museum and a subsidy made by the  Regional Foundation for Museum Acquisitions, new works have been added to enhance the existing collection
