Museums, ecomuseums and art galleries

Exciting museums ans ecomuseums explore past and present

The rich and diverse collections of the Corrèze’s museums and ecomuseums explore various periods of history from Neanderthal man to today, via the traditional tanning industry in Bort-les-Orgues, the “black nose” workers at the National Arms Factory museum in Tulle and the the slate quarry workers in Travassac. Art is also on the agenda with Tulle lace, the unique collection of Mortlake tapestries from England at the Musée Labenche in Brive and the gifts given to Jacques Chirac which are housed in the Musée du Président in Sarran, contemporary creations at the Meymac art centre.... The Corrèze has an important Resistance history and three venues are dedicated to the memory of this period when local and national history overlapped.
