Located in the Vicountcy House, a 16th century home that belonged to Nicolas Fouquet, the Melun museum was created in 1860.

Its collections cover three essential fields: archaeology, ceramics and painting. The results of recent archaeological digs have been added to the old limited collection (Gallo-Roman and medieval periods), as well as an important collection of drawings covering Melun and its monuments.
