Le Musée départemental de l'Oise

The departmental Museum of the Oise is installed in the former Palace of bishops-counts of Beauvais, at the foot of the Cathedral. This remarkable architectural set of buildings, classified as a historical monument, has a 14th century gatehouse (with the famous mural of the sirènes musiciennes), connected by a wing to the Renaissance palace for the Bishop Louis-Villiers of l'Isle - Adam (1497-1521) itself built on the foundations of a 12th century building.

The Palace is currently the subject of a global museographic renovation project.

Pending the end of the work, a representative selection of the permanent collections takes the visitor on a journey that includes the Gaulish Warrior of Saint-Maur to the stones and carved wood of the middle ages (with valuable elements from the old Beauvais wooden houses).

See also, the works of the French school of the 16th century, with an astonishing Résurrection du Christ (circa 1594) by Antoine Caron, culminating in the 19th and 20th centuries with Huet tableaux (including the superb Retour du grognard), Corot (with the most complete version of the famous Vasque de l’Académie de France à Rome, a Parisian landscape and a study on the château de Pierrefonds), powerful sketches by Thomas Couture for his monumental canvas l’Enrôlement des volontaires, without forgetting Ingres, Vuillard, Maurice Denis, Vallotton, Le Sidaner…    more ...

Musée de la Nacre et de la Tabletterie

Musée de la Nacre et de la Tabletterie
From the 17th century, marquetry craftsmen in the region of Méru were making a whole range of luxury articles for Parisian wholesalers (fans, opera glasses, broaches, buttons, toiletries, cutlery, jewellery...) using natural materials from distant parts of the world : pearl oysters, shellfish, animal horn, tortoiseshell, ivory, bone and exotic wood.

The inhabitants of Méru have always kept strong ties with what used to be the major activity of their region, even though there is just a handful of craftsmen working with mother-of-pearl today.

The Musée de la Nacre et de la Tabletterie (the mother-of-pearl and marquetry museum) is the living account of these memories, honoring Méru more than ever before, as the mother-of-pearl capital.    more ...
