Address musée Rupert-de-Chièvres 9 Rue Victor Hugo, 86000 Poitiers, France

The Rupert de Chièvres museum is located at 9 rue Victor Hugo in Poitiers. It is part of the municipal museums of the city.

With the Holy Cross Museum, the Rupert de Chièvres Museum is one of the flagship museums of the city.

The building belonged to François Radegonde Rupert de Chièvres in the 19th century. This wealthy man assembled a collection of paintings from the Dutch and Flemish schools, as well as earthenware and furniture.

In 1886, the mansion was sold to the Société des Antiquaires de l’Ouest and then to the city of Poitiers.

To enter, visitors used to go through the Augustins’ gate, built by Jean Girouard senior in the 1670’s. This monumental gate was the one of the convent not far from there, in the place of stores on the Maréchal Leclerc square. It was classified as a historical monument in 1895 and moved in 1901.

Since 2009, the museum is closed to reorganize the collections under the eye of experts in art history.
