The Gassendi Museum

The Gassendi Museum

The Gassendi Museum presents encyclopaedic collections in the field of art, local history, physics and natural sciences.
The visit proposes an invitation through time where the incredible encounters between science, contemporary art and traditional painting take place.

Opening out into its surrounding areas, the Gassendi Museum is also developing a collection of open-air, land-artwork installations, inviting contemporary artists such as Andy Goldsworthy, Joan Fontcuberta, Herman de Vries and Mark Dion to create artwork installation in open-nature. This unique project (including 160 works and approximately thirty artists) proposes to combine the pleasure of walking with the discovery of the local natural and cultural heritage through art-appreciation walking-trails such as Andy Goldsworthy's Refuge d'Art Project (Land-Art installations doubling as havens, sancturies of peace and contemplation in wild, natural surroundings), and similarly the art-installations of Herman de Vries or the Contemporary Art Route.
