The Museum’s Architecture

In 1994, the museum left the 19th century building that had been its home for more than a century, and moved into a new building, whose temperate and relevant design is better suited to the requirements of modern-day museum exhibition design.

The different areas follow on from one other around a chronological circuit, with specific zones for each century in the permanent collection. Almost eleven thousand square feet of floor space with movable partitions are reserved for temporary exhibitions. The drawing section has found a prime location in a medieval tower, which is linked to the new building via a glass-paneled footbridge. A simple circuit, predominantly zenithal lighting and views over the town create a serene atmosphere, ideal for exploring the collections.
