Emblematic works from the collections of the Renaissance period will be displayed along the permanent route and will exceptionally be removed from the reserves.
Hôtel Cabu, a building founded around 1548 at the request of Phillipe Cabu, a successful lawyer from Orléans, has a rich architecture. The ornamented facade is organized on three levels decorated with very beautiful sculpted decorations. These three superimposed orders, in the style of Henry II, are the first evidence of the import of the Italian order system into Orléans architecture. This beautiful Renaissance mansion house now houses the collections of the Musée d’Histoire et d’Archéologie d’Orléans.
