Did you know?

During the Hundred Years’ War, the Treaty of Brétigny offered Montauban to the English. Construction began on a fort on the banks of the Tarn, while the left bank remained French.

In 1664, Bishop Pierre de Bertier decided to build his new episcopal palace on the ruins of the old fort. After the French Revolution, the palace became the town hall and home to the first municipal museum and drawing school.

Musée Ingres Bourdelle


with two major regional sites

Saint Pierre de Moissac Abbey

The Musée Ingres Bourdelle in Montauban and the Abbaye Saint-Pierre in Moissac are major cultural sites that attract a wide regional, national and international audience of art lovers, local residents and tourists. A three-year partnership agreement (2024-2027) invites visitors to both sites. This networking also responds to one of the missions of museums, set out in the “Museums Law”, i.e. to reach the widest possible audience. Visitors to the Abbaye de Moissac can visit the Musée Ingres Bourdelle at a reduced rate (€5 instead of €10 at the current rate), and vice versa (€5 instead of €7 at the current rate at the Abbaye).
