The Nicolas Poussin Museum

Let’s discover the history of Les Andelys in an 18th century setting

Musée Nicolas Poussin, Les AndelysThe Nicolas Poussin Museum is set in an old 18th century mansion and tells the town history from the Prehistoric era to the Industrial activities of the 20th century.

The collections on display are made up of very different pieces about Fine Arts, decorative arts, archaeology, industrial history and local history.

The museum also shows a painting by Nicolas Poussin called “Coriolanus being implored upon by his family”.  This masterpiece reminds us of the local origin of the greatest French painter of the 17th century, born in Villers, a hamlet in the neighbourhood, and whose name was given to the museum: Nicolas Poussin.

Each room depicts a particular theme to show the richness and the variety of the local heritage:

  • The religious heritage
  • The collections linked to the Duke of Penthièvre
  • Decorative glass made by the Andelysian factory: Holophane
  • Paintings from the Rouen School of  Art
  • Gallo-Roman and archaeological artefacts.

The Nicolas Poussin museum also houses temporary exhibitions about other local themes or highlights the work of contemporary artists.
