Petit Futé's opinion on MUSEUM OF ART AND ARCHAEOLOGY OF THE PERIGORD (MAAP)

Vintage plate 2020

Created in 1835, this museum is the oldest in the department. Housed in the former Augustinian convent, it has over 2,000 m² of permanent exhibition space with almost 50,000 items, including France's second largest collection of prehistoric remains. Once past the monumental entrance, which opens onto a cloister with a garden and galleries at the back, you are immersed in the richness of the collections, which are presented in the manner of a cabinet of curiosities: archaeology (prehistory, Gallo-Roman, medieval), non-European ethnography (Africa, Oceania), minerals and fossils, magnificent fine arts rooms (European schools from the 16th to the 19th century, regional artists from the 18th to the 20th century, a room dedicated to the sculptor Etienne Hajdu), objets d'art (enamels, liturgical objects) and local industry (earthenware factories in Bergerac, Thiviers and Périgueux). Many activities are offered, such as museum Thursdays, Wednesday or holiday workshops, family workshops, museum night, heritage days, the Muséophages, etc. Documents are made available to the public: room maps, annotated labels, leaflets for adults, discovery books, treasure hunts for the youngest. There are many temporary exhibitions which are presented on the museum's website or on their social networks. There is a coupling of tickets for a visit with the Vesunna museum which presents the Gallo-Roman collections and the ruins of an ancient villa: the Domus de Vesone.

Un vrai musée généraliste de province proposant tous les genres, du paléolithique à l'art contemporain. Le cloitre , voué aux sculptures médiévales, vaut le déplacement. Dans la section Beaux-arts rien de bien transcendant, surtout du second choix, parfois de qualité mais déjà vu dans tous les musées de préfecture de l'hexagone. Pour les plus marquants : Canaleto, Teniers, Coypel, Oudry, Bonnat , Guigou et beaucoup trop de " école de ...."

Une collection très variée: ethnologie, préhistoire, sculpture, peinture y compris les peintres locaux. Jeu de piste pour les enfants.

Beau musée d'art et d'archéologie, avec des collections riches qui valent le déplacement, le prix d'entrée est correct pour la richesse des oeuvres du musée. Joli parc arboré à proximité pour y faire une pause pic-nique.
