Discover Musée d'Évreux (Evreux Museum)

The Evreux Museum is located in the episcopal palace built at the end of the 15th century. It offers a complete panorama of the art and archaeology of the Evreux region.
Opened in 1985, the archaeological wing of the basement enables you to see fragments of the Gallo-Roman rampart. The collection is also rich in furniture from the 17th and 18th centuries and in paintings from the 19th century (Géricault, Boudin, etc.). A smaller wing is dedicated to contemporary art. Open every day, except on Mondays and some bank holidays, from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm and from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm.
