Within the prestigious walls of the former episcopal palace, you'll discover an exceptional collection of Maurienne costumes. The museum also displays tools and utensils from everyday life in days gone by.
The dresses of the Arvan and Villards valleys in particular are among the most original in the Alps. In the former bishop's chapel, you can see the reconstruction of a typical Maurienne interior. One room features archaeological collections, another is devoted to religious art, and a third to the history of the Savoy dynasty.
Période(s) d'ouvertureOpen during school vacations, Monday to Friday, 2pm to 6pm. Guided tours all year round on request.
