Museum Le Grand Lens

Located in a house dating from 1889, the Museum Le Grand Lens is the memory of a whole region.

This charming museum, renovated and opened in 2013, houses a collection of striking exhibits and objects that have shaped the history of the Lens region.
The cobbler’s shop gives an insight into our ancestors’ way of life. The richly decorated salon is a fine example of bourgeois living in an essentially peasant village in the 17th and 18th centuries. There is a section dedicated to the writer Charles-Ferdinand Ramuz and the painter Albert Muret, both of whom lived in this village.
The exhibits, the oldest of which date back to the 1st millennium BC, will immerse you in the village’s past.
