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.
