Drawings & Prints Museum

The Powder-Magazine inside the old Arsenal in Gavelines - the town ramparts in the background

Museum in old powder magazine
Installed in the arsenal at the heart of Gravelines well-preserved old fortifications, the Gravelines drawings and prints museum is the only one of its kind in France.

It presents contemporary and traditional graphic art with a collection starting with a medieval print by Dürer (1471-1528); illustrations by Balzac and Picasso; and many examples of conventional and experimental print-making techniques (for which demonstrations and classes are occasionally on offer).
