The Donjon de Gouzon houses a space of Industrial Archeology on 4 levels.
This dungeon of the twelfth century. and thirteenth century, restored houses a museum space on four levels.
The vertical movement is ensured by an elevator (public commission of the Delegation to the Visual Arts), work of the architect designer Sylvain Dubuisson.
The industries of the Chauvin country are evoked from the Neolithic until today through the gaze of the archaeologist: the stone and quarries of the Chauvinois basin; the earth and the manufacture of ceramics evoking the history of the porcelain factory of Chauvigny.
The exhibition "Living with the gods" (2nd level) transports you to the times of the Romans and shows you ceramics, statues, sculptures, ... found in the sanctuary of Gué-de-Sciaux (Antigny, 86).
