The Art History Museum in Orange, housed in a 17th-century mansion, faces the entrance to the Roman Theatre. The rooms tell the story of Orange and its Roman past, and the significance of its bishopric in the 18th century. There is also a curiosity cabinet from the 19th century, and many other rooms to explore.
See the sculpted frieze of centaurs and horsewomen which was originally a theatre set, the Roman register from the 1st Century AD, sculpted into marble, and the collections of paintings and tapestries. The Museum retraces the history of Orange from Prehistory to the present day, and displays many archaeological objects and sculptures from the Roman Theatre and Triumphal Arch sites, including a large mosaic called the 'Petites Amphores' from the 2nd or 3rd century.
There are also rooms specifically dedicated to showcasing the history of Provencal fabric and the English artists Albert de Belleroche and Frank Brangwyn.
