Musée d’art et d’histoire

Patrimoine culturel,

SAINT-LO

Situated in the administrative heart of the city, with its contemporary setting, the St-Lô Museum of Fine Art houses a collection of great wealth and variety. With more than 500 works on show, the museum’s collections offer a panoramic view of the history of painting from the 17 th century to the present day, illustrated by numerous artists such as Jordaens, Corot, Millet, Boudin, Léger, and de Castro. A collection of
tapestries from the 16 th to the 20 th centuries is also on display, including a hanging of ‘Les Amours de Gombault et Macée’, Jean Lurçat and Grau Garriga, making this a must to visit.
Although the museum is mainly devoted to Fine Art, from the summer of 2014 visitors have also been able to take in a new exhibition entitled ‘Men make the History of Saint-Lô’. Covering over 300 m² of floor space, it traces the history of the city from Neolithic times right up to its reconstruction in the middle of the 20 th century. The twists and turns in the town’s fortunes are shown through the eyes and lives of the characters who lived through them.
