    Located in one of the last half-timbered houses that remain in Lisieux, it presents, following a chronological route, the history of the city from its origins to the present day and addresses the multiplicity of its faces: the Gallo-Roman city, medieval and classical, the textile city, illustrious figures, Reconstruction ... Two themes are also discussed: the Bishops of Lisieux and the Lexovian habitat.

    An abundant history, illustrated by more than 300 objects, paintings, photographs ... But the undisputed centerpiece of the museum cannot be contained in a display case or a room, since it is the city itself!
