Located in the former St.-Etienne church. Plaster casts of the romantic and bombastic sculptures of François Rude. His well known monumental 'La Marseillaise', part of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, covers the entire back wall.

This is in an old building or ancient place and has a few statues in one room with one significant one taking up a large wall. An adjoining room reflect significant age. It takes 10 minutes, close to a church and the Beaux Arts. Go.
