Santon Museum

Santons are small nativity scene figurines produced in the Provence region of southeastern France.

The museum is open during school holidays, from 17 October to 11 November and from 19 December to 3 January.
The museum houses several different collections – Neapolitan figurines from the 17th and 18th centuries, 19th-century “santons” for churches and figures by famous makers such as Carbonnel, Fouque, Jouve, Peyton Campagna, Toussaint, Thérèse Neveu, Louise Berger, Simone Jouglas etc.

The building that houses the Santon Museum was built over the old town walls. It was purchased by the Community of Les Baux in 1619 and used successively as a guardroom, school, court and Town Hall from the mid-17tn century to 1960.
