Musée d'Art et d'Archéologie Review

Laon's art and archeology museum has some fine 17th-century paintings by the celebrated Le Nain brothers (Antoine, Louis, and Mathieu, all of whom who were born here), as well as a collection of Mediterranean finds from the Bronze Age through the Gallo-Roman era that is second in importance only to that at the Louvre. The Chapelle des Templiers in the garden—a small, octagonal 12th-century chapel topped by a shallow dome—houses fragments of the cathedral's gable and the chilling effigy of Guillaume de Harcigny, doctor to the insane king Charles VI.
