Since 1983, the original collection assembled by Léon Alègre has been displayed in the "Maison Jourdan," in order to pay homage to the passionate archeologist who was also one of the founders of the Museum of Bagnols-sur-Cèze in the 19th century.

  Gallo-Roman artefacts
 
Two rooms recall Léon Alègre's cabinet of curiosities, product of the collector's open-mindedness and eclecticism.
 
Numerous drawings and writings show the artist's interest in local and regional life. They recreate picturesque views of the old town and the surrounding countryside.
 
The finest discoveries of the local archeological society have been added to the artefacts preserved in the permanent collections. Visitors are presented with a vast overview of the civilizations that succeeded each other on this land facing the Rhône Valley, and they can look at artefacts from the beginning of the Iron Age to the end of Roman antiquity.
