This excellent pop music museum used to be at the Château des Ducs de Bourbon, but moved into a swish new home in 2013. This combines two historic mansions in the old town, one of which has kept its historic identity, and the other has been transformed with modern design.

Best of all is the assortment of instruments, totalling more than 3,5000, and the oldest from the middle of the 18th century.

This is the largest single collection in France, with anything from hurdy-gurdies to electric guitars.

You’ll see how old-time folk instruments were crafted at the workshop, and take a trip down memory lane at the big wall of record covers.
