Cluny, Musée d'art et d'archéologie, Palais Jean de Bourbon An independent residential building, the palace built by the Abbot Jean de Bourbon in the second half of the 15th century, close to the main entrance, occupies a special position above the site of the abbey of Cluny. It was spared the vandalism of the Revolution and was then purchased by a resident of Cluny, Jean-Baptiste Ochier. It assumed its present role as museum following a gift by the widow of a Cluny doctor in 1864. Two years later the new museum opened its doors.
Charolles, Espace René Davoine In his workshop house there are 80 studies, models and sculptures, all along simple, pure lines. This is an atmosphere in which a visitor is invited to come in and discover an artist and his message.
Charolles, Musée du Prieuré The Priory Museum offers a collection of Charolles pottery, pieces of exceptional craftsmanship alongside popular items of an advertising or religious nature. Some forty canvasses by Jean Laronze (1852-1937), a Burgundy landscape artist reflect the feeling of nobility and calm that the landscapes of Saône-et-Loire inspired in him. The Priory Chapel has since 2006 held the collection of sculptures by René Davoine (1888-1962).
