The museum is housed in an architectural masterpiece, that was a former residence of Jacques C'ur, built in 1632 and renovated by the state. The Archaeological Society of Montpellier (one of the oldest scholarly societies in France) was established here in 1901 and the society's collection of pottery and sculptures comes from digs at various archaeological sites in the Languedoc. Most objects date from ancient, medieval and classical periods while certain go back to prehistoric times.
