Fodor's Expert Review Musée St-Loup

Troyes Art Museum

The former 18th-century abbey of St-Loup, to the side of the cathedral, now houses a superlative collection of paintings from the 15th to the 19th century—including works by Peter Paul Rubens, Anthony Van Dyck, Antoine Watteau, François Boucher, and Jacques-Louis David. Other highlights include an impressive assortment of birds and meteorites; medieval statuary; and local archaeological finds, most notably gold-mounted 5th-century jewelry and a bronze Gallo-Roman statue of Apollo. Major renovations are underway, so parts of the museum may be closed to the public until 2022.
