Bibendum
Housed in the former corn exchange (1835), this museum was extended in 1971 by Louis Miquel, a pupil of Le Corbusier. It houses a fine collection of Egyptian and Gallo-Roman antiquities, and statues and items from the Middle Ages and Renaissance. The highlight of the museum is its eclectic collection of paintings, many of which are from the Granvelle family, such as The Drunkenness of Noah by Giovanni Bellini, Deposition from the Cross by Bronzino, and Scenes of Cannibalism by Goya.
