    • The Abbey of Arthous honors its origins and its collections which gave birth to the museum. The exceptional sculptures of prehistoric horses discovered in the 1960s in the neighboring town of Sorde-l'Abbaye, of which it is the depositary, are the subject of an exhibition of photographs and a new space for enhancement: the "Treasure room".

      Considered the jewels of the departmental collection, the three horse sculptures from the Abri Duruthy in Sorde-l'Abbaye, attributed to the Middle Magdalenian and dated around 17,000 years before the present, are exhibited in the old chapel deprived of the abbot. The scenography, which brings together original works and contemporary photographs, invites emotion to better understand these masterpieces of Palaeolithic portable art.

      Arthous Abbey is open:

      • From April 1 to April 30 from 2 p.m. to 5.30 p.m.
      • From June 1 to September 30 from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

      • From October 1 to November 15 from 2 p.m. to 5.30 p.m.
      • Closed Mondays, May 1, November 1 and 11.

    An interesting place but I have not at all found the atmosphere that you think you can find in such a place. On the other hand a beautiful exhibition in the church, a little surprising.

    A historic place too bad that everything is explained by video and others ..... lack of human warmth. The + is the fish exhibition in the Abbey to SEE absolutely, superb, magnificent, it makes you dream.....
