ATTENTION : All of the following information has been provided by the museum. For the moment, they are unable to publish their events calendar online. We therefore suggest that you contact the museum directly for further information.

The museum takes its name from the first President of the Friends of the Villefranche and Bas Rouergue Society founded in 1913. Over the years, the association built up a number of collections based on local history. A first museum was created. From 1963, the Commune stepped in and a project to enlarge the existing institution was launched. Since 2002, the museum has been designated Musée de France.

The museum has assembled a very varied permanent collection : mineralogy, prehistory, Gallo-Roman archaeology, baroque art and furniture from the town’s Black Penitent’s chapel, dermatology and medicine from the nineteenth century and local folk art. A collection of indigenous art from Oceania runs alongside the local works. The archaeology room has been recently renovated.
