The Le Vergeur Museum offers an immersive experience into the preserved interior of a manor house that belonged to a member of Reims’ upper class, showcases three centuries of art and tells a personal story of Reims’ heritage. The building, which dates back to the Middle Ages and the Renaissance and was seriously damaged during the First World War, was saved by its owner Hugues Krafft (1853-1935), who travelled extensively in the Middle East and East Asia. After his death, his rich collections of furniture and pieces of art became the core focus of a museum bequeathed to the Société des Amis du Vieux Reims (Association of the Friends of Old Reims). The collections have since been added to regularly, thanks to the generosity of many donors. One particularly notable addition is the complete and original The Apocalypse and The Large Passion series of engravings by Albrecht Dürer.
