Petit Futé's opinion on BARGOIN MUSEUM

Plate millesim 2022

This museum was created in 1903 thanks to the 200,000 francs that Jean-Baptiste Bargoin bequeathed to the city of Clermont-Ferrand for this purpose. It has two departments. The first is devoted to archaeology, with a collection of prehistoric and Gallo-Roman artifacts from the region. The second one promotes textiles from all over the world, during temporary exhibitions. Guided tours, game trails for children, conferences, workshops, lunch breaks and concerts enrich the program. The documentation center is free to access.

Message from Management BARGOIN MUSEUM

Located in a neoclassical building inaugurated in 1903 in the heart of the city of Clermont-Ferrand, the Bargoin Museum offers particularly rich and original collections.

It houses two departments: one devoted to archaeology and the other to textiles.

The archaeology department offers a rich and varied insight into the Arverne territory by extending the simple chronology to the discovery of forms, materials, ways of life and know-how. The collections are mainly from excavations carried out in Clermont-Ferrand and the Clermont area.

The textile arts department offers a wide panorama of non-European textiles from the 18th to the 21st century. Beyond the exceptional textiles (forms, materials, meanings), it is above all the people who are highlighted. Those who weave, dye, sew, create, live and pass on. The Textile Arts Department brings together pieces from the Near and Middle East, Central and Eastern Asia and America: clothing, carpets, furniture and religious objects. In order to respect their fragility, they cannot be displayed on a permanent basis, which makes it possible to hold regular exhibitions on varied and attractive themes.

Décevant, un musée qui devait être plus grand mais qui souffre d'un manque de choses intéressantes à voir, malgré quelques tissus des quatre coins du monde.
Depuis le 1er mars, les ex-voto de la Source des Roches de Chamalières ont réintégré le Musée Bargoin (nouvelle exposition, nouvelle scénographie). Le musée est en plein changement une nouvelle exposition sera découverte début mai.
