  • Located on the 1st floor of the former Jesuit College as part of the City and Country of Art and History label, the Heritage Center invites visitors to discover the history and heritage of Montauban.

    Opened in 2008, the heritage center unfolds around the courtyard of the former Jesuit college. It brings together in one place the administration of the heritage department, an educational space for young audiences, a resource center and two large exhibition rooms ...

    The permanent exhibition "Montauban, portrait of a city" tells the destiny of the city from its foundation to the present day, around a relief map of the territory. Deposits of objects from the collections of the Ingres Museum and the Montauban Hospital enrich the visit. A children's area also offers the youngest treasure hunts, memory and dominoes for a fun discovery of Montauban.

    This ensemble is completed by thematic temporary exhibitions.

    The heritage center coordinates all initiatives of Montauban within the framework of the label City of Art and History and offers all year round guided tours, exhibitions, conferences and events for Montalban, tourists and school children.

    All guided tours are conducted by tour guides from the Heritage Center. Accredited by the Ministry of Culture and Communication, they give you all the keys to understand the history of the city, its architecture, its heritage.

    Entrance to the exhibition spaces is free.
