Museum of Decorative Arts

An in-depth look at upper-class life of the 18th and 19th centuries.

At the end of the 18th century, the Marquis of Castelmoron, Pierre Raymon de Lalande, acquired a plot of land from the Catholic Church where he had built a luxurious villa surrounded by gardens, known for years as the Hôtel de Lalande. But the family didn't last long here, thanks to the guillotines of that time, so it became property of the city of Bordeaux, and today these three floors plus stables house the Museum of Decorative Arts showcasing a rich collection of 18th- and 19th-century object including porcelain, furniture, sculpture, lithographs, minatures, crystalware, and cutlery of the upper classes, including a room dedicated to the Bourbon royal dynasty. There are also temporary exhibitions covering a range of subjects and movements from the Art Deco of the 1920s to the present day.
