Le monde en tête, la donation Antoine de Galbert

In the museum's largest room, the exhibition invites you to freely explore, like a stroll through a garden, around twenty or so tables that group the headdresses together by theme, such as feathers of the Amazon, wedding headdresses and symbols of power, in order to understand their uses.
"As I contemplate my collection of headdresses, I get an exhilarating feeling of travelling around the world, like a journey without moving, or an inner, mental adventure like those one sometimes has lying in bed. This collection reflects a certain form of romanticism, fed by reading accounts written by great travellers…" Antoine de Galbert
