Musée d'Art et d'Archéologie Review

Built atop a Gallo-Roman residence, and reopened in January 2013 after a stunning four-year renovation, the town's excellent Musée d'Art et d'Archéologie displays archeological finds ranging from Gallo-Roman votive objects unearthed in the neighboring Halatte Forest to the building's own excavated foundations (uncovered in the basement), including some macabre stone heads bathed in half light. Upstairs, paintings include works by Manet's teacher, Thomas Couture (who lived in Senlis), and the charming naïve flower paintings by Senlis's own Séraphine de Senlis.
