in short

The museum spans almost fifteen centuries of history. Although its collections include works evoking the end of the Roman empire and the barbarian invasions, they are best known for the broad panorama they give of the Romanesque and Gothic styles.

Musée du Moyen Age – Thermes de Cluny

in detail

Installed in two outstanding monuments – the Gallo-Roman public baths dating from the first centuries AD and the house where the abbots of Cluny lived in the late fifteenth century – the Museum of the Middle Ages spans almost fifteen centuries of history. However, although its collections include works evoking the end of the Roman empire and the barbarian invasions, they are best known for the broad panorama they give of everyday life in the Middle Ages and the Romanesque and Gothic styles that flourished in the arts of these times. The exhibits include sculpture, illuminated manuscripts, stained glass, gold and silver work and tapestries.
