This regional museum is the work of François Carnot (1872-1960), son of the former President of the Republic who married, in Grasse, Valentine Chiris, daughter of a perfume industrialist responsible for inventing solvent extraction. The creation of this museum quickly drew the local elite and a number of French and foreign donors. It is based on a large group of Friends of the Museum, owners of the collections, which today supports the museum’s development and activities.

With a focus on regional archaeology and popular arts and traditions, expressed in a selection of paintings, sculptures, graphic arts, furnishings, ceramics, glassware, textiles, jewelry, and weapons, the museum tells the history of eastern Provence where traditions, firmly rooted in everyday life, fostered the emergence of strong local identities.

In this mansion, which has retained its original interior of staterooms and private spaces, visitors will find accurate and fascinating room reconstructions and educational exhibition in a harmonious museology cover three levels overlooking the gardens on the south side.
