The fine Arts Collection : A selection of painting from the 19th and 20th cebturies are held at the museum. This collection of paintings comprises works by Raoul Carré, Jehan Berjonneau, Alfred Plauzeau, Raoul-Félix Etève, Jeanne Harry-Lorne and Henri-Pierre Lejeune. The subjects depicted by the artists are varied. The majority are portraits but the landscape of the local area is strongly featured with the artists having drawn inspiration both from the landscape of the region and their wider travels.

As well as the painting there are a number of graphic documents, designs by Henri Plisson and water colours by Gratiant Emmanuel.
