Welcome to the Musée Gallé-Juillet

The Musée Gallé-Juillet, is comprised of two mansions located inside the courtyard of the city hall: the “Maison Gallé-Juillet” and the” Maison de la Faïence”, both built on the  foundations of the Creil fortified castle.

The Maison Gallé-Juillet (Gallé-Juillet House)

The maison Gallé-Juillet recounts the life of a bourgeois family who lived there in the 19th century. It maintains a collection of decorative arts and fine arts of over 5,000 works.

The Maison de la Faïence (Earthenware House)

The Maison de la Faïence and its treasure tower are testimony of Creil heritage. Creil ceramic factory’s history is evoked through the display of nearly 600  pieces of fine earthenware and text panels. The museum collections continue to grow thanks to the acquisition of several dozen of new pieces every year.

The Gallo-Roman history of Creil is enhanced by the display of the “treasure from the lock”, a collection of several hundred of silver and bronze coins dating from the 3rd century AD.
