City & Around
Moulins is a wonderful city in the middle of France. About 20.000 inhabitants in the City and 60,000 around. The town is proud to present its renowned creativity which has survived the centuries from the days of the Dukes of Bourbon down to the present day.
Alongside the river Allier, basking in the gentle colours of the town's bricks and pink sandstone, take the time to enjoy the special atmosphere to be found here.
A rich architectural history
As a Town of Art and History, Moulins, features a number of impressive architectural heritage sites. The Cathedral of Moulins houses the famous Master of Moulins Triptych painting. Created in 990, Moulins was the Duchy of Bourbonnais from 1327 to 1527. Today, traces of the patronage of the Dukes of Bourbon can be seen all around Moulins. The town’s guides will help you discover this impressive heritage. Enjoy a stroll through the cobbled streets of the historical old town combining timber framed houses, middle class homes and fine town houses. Discover the Chapel of the Visitation whose outstanding painted ceilings have recently been restored.
Unique museums and cultural sites
There are also several museums in Moulins, with diverse and unique collections.
Maison Mantin is just across the square from the cathedral. Bequeathed to the town in 1905 by Louis Mantin, a wealthy middle-class citizen, so now, a century after his death, visitors can visit "a specimen middle-class residence of the 19th century". The house, frozen in time for ever, conserves the quirky collection of the master of the house.
The Musée de l'Illustration Jeunesse is Iocated in the heart of the old town in a marvellous private building dating from the 18th century. Unique in its kind, the museum is devoted to illustrations from children's books dating from the last 50 years, with something new every six months thanks to the temporary exhibitions hosted there.
The Centre national du costume de scène et de la scénographie (National Theatre Costume and Stage Design Centre). With a collection of 10,000 opera, theatre, opera and ballet costumes, which organises a number of extremely varied annual exhibitions this centre is a shrine to costume making know-how and the creation of theatrical settings.
