Musée du Vieux Nîmes
This museum overlooks the fountain at the Place du Chapitre, in the heart of the historic centre of Nîmes, next to the Notre-Dame-et-Saint-Castor cathedral, inside the former episcopal palace with elegant 18th-century facades.
The museum’s collections include everyday objects related to the history of Nîmes and surrounding region, ranging from textiles and industrial art, to iconography of the town and its monuments, ceramics and furniture, fine arts and graphic arts, popular and more unusual objects. There is a room devoted to the history of denim (from Nîmes). The temporary exhibitions showcase some very interesting pieces from everyday life in Nîmes from the early Middle Ages.
