Presentation
Located in the heart of the small lanes that make up the histoic district of the capital of Gascony, Le Musée des Jacobins possesses the second-largest collection of Pre-Columbian art in all of France, second only to that of Le Musée Quai Branly.

With more than a thousand square meters of exhibition space, the museum offers a very complete view of the great prehispanic cultures from Peru to Mexico.

Exceptional collections of ceramics, gold work and Andean textiles are just a few examples. The more remarkable pieces include the museum's undisputed masterpiece, "Messe de Saint-Grégoire", a Mexican feather mosaic dating from 1539.

The museum also offers an exhibition presenting the popular arts and traditions of 19th-century Gascony. In a renovated exhibition space, a number of traditional costume pieces, including christening robes, cashmere shawls and wedding dresses, form an educational display.

The museum also includes galleries of Egyptian artefacts and Gallo-Roman and medieval antiques as well as paintings and sculptures by artists of the region from the 18th to 20th centuries.
