Plaster cast workshop

Next to the Museum buildings is an hidden gem : our plaster-cast workshop. Over the last 150 years, more than 4000 casts of works of art from all over the world have been molded and now form a collection in their own right. Despite the age of the workshop, it is still active. Every day reproductions, big and small, are produced using an ancient and artisanal technique. It is possible to order reproductions directly from the workshop, and to visit this lovely, quite hidden site.
