Arts & Museums
Tracing its origins to a couple of centuries ago, Musée Sainte-Croix is built close to the site of a monastery. Visiting this museum is like re-visiting the bygone eras especially while encountering pieces of art and fossils dating back to the Paleolithic and Middle Ages. Evoking a strong sense of history and how life must have been in medieval Poitiers, no visitor leaves without being sufficiently impressed by the sheer size and variety of the collections. The timings vary seasonally, check the website for exact visiting hours.
Maison de l’architecture de Poitou-Charentes or MDAPC as it is shortly referred to is a gem of an institution that delights not just architecture students and professionals but all visitors in general. First opened in 1996, it was then renovated in 2005 to include rental spaces for conferences and exhibtions. At times foreign language movies are also screened here. Check the website for more information.
