Musée Baron-Gérard Review

Housed in the Bishop's Palace beneath the cathedral, fronted by a majestic plane tree planted in March 1797 and known as the Tree of Liberty, the recently renovated Musée Baron-Gérard (also known as the Musée d'Art et d'Histoire de Baron Gérard or MAHB) contains a fine collection of Bayeux porcelain and lace, ceramics from Rouen, a marvelous collection of pharmaceutical jars from the 17th and 18th centuries, and 16th- to 19th-century furniture and paintings by local artists.
