The only one of its kind in France, the Franco-American Museum, dedicated to the relations between France and the United States, is built on the remains of a 17th century castle. It was founded in 1924 by Anne Morgan, daughter of the American banker J.P. Morgan, who set up a humanitarian organization for the reconstruction of the region, the CARD, in the castle in 1917.
This museum presents its collections according to three main themes: the Ideals of the Lumières at the origin of the first alliances between the two nations, the Trials during which France and the United States fought side by side, and the Arts, the subject of many transatlantic exchanges.
