MUSEE NA­TIONAL DES DOUANES

NA­TIONAL CUS­TOMS MU­SEUM

Charming Bordeaux - - THE DISTRICTS OF BORDEAUX -

Re­count­ing the evo­lu­tion of one of the old­est French ad­min­is­tra­tions, the col­lec­tion evokes the tech­ni­cal na­ture of the con­fronta­tion be­tween smug­glers and cus­toms of­fi­cers. Equally in­struc­tive is the evo­lu­tion of cus­toms poli­cies from an­tiq­uity to the present. Amongst fake paint­ings and other coun­ter­feits, an au­then­tic Monet: ‘The Cus­toms House’. 1 place de la Bourse - C > Place de la Bourse +33 (0)9 70 27 57 66 - www.musee-douanes.fr 10 a.m to 6 p.m. Closed on Mon­days. €3
