The Briard museum was founded in 1961 by the Association des Amis des Arts et Traditions de la Brie (The Association of Friends of Brie Arts and Traditions). Located a few meters from the Merovingian crypts, it is easy to reach.

The objects and pieces are presented by themes.The collections cover essentially documents concerning the history of the Brie region: paintings, engravings and drawings from all periods (16th, 17th and 18th centuries), featuring Briard monuments, interiors and people, archives, furniture, costumes, tools, utensils and all manifestations of the local "peasant civilisation", its arts and traditions. The first presentation is dedicated to wheat, milling and woodworking. Horse-shoeing and wheel making tools are presented along with several examples of their production.
