Museums and monuments

Learn about our heritage

Narbonne, Ville d’art et d’histoire, has a wonderful diversity of cultural heritage on offer, opening vistas of learning onto its two millennia of history.

Journey to the centre of Narbonne's past in the four museums with their collections as diverse as they are rich, all housed inside classified monuments.

Why not end your visit with an invigorating climb up the tower of the  Donjon Gilles Aycelin, visiting the acoustic room of The Treasury or perhaps seeing the house where French singing legend Charles Trenet was born.

Visiting everything is made easier thanks to the special price offers proposed in the town's

Pass Monuments et Musées scheme or with an audioguide (available in six languages).

You can also discover all these sites with our commentated visits.
