A visit to the Musée des Augustins is the opportunity to discover masterpieces from the Middle Ages up until the first years of the 20th century. Various tools are available to allow visitors to personnalise their visit.

To prepare for a visit, most of our assistance is on line: exhibition room information, audio guides and soon a mobile phone application.
At museum reception, visitors can hire the audio guide (2€) and in the halls and rooms, various information sheets present the collections.
To enhance comfort, groups accompanied by their own guide can borrow microphone and headset equipment.
