Just a few kilometres north of Henri Martin’s city of birth, Toulouse, is Cahors, a small city with a population of just over 20,000. Among the rich history and culture of this city is the Musée Henri Martin, which was established in 1833 and has acquired over 10,000 objects and documents, including archaeological and ethnographical artefacts from around the world, as well as a formidable collection of principally French art ranging from the 16th century to modern times, including a large selection of works from Henri Martin’s career.
Opening hours: 11am-6pm daily
