A real institution in Macon, the Maison de Bois is one of the oldest buildings in the city (if not THE oldest). Built between 1490 and 1510, its wooden facade is decorated with a multitude of statuettes, fantastic characters with grotesque looks. Seat of a bachique brotherhood (brotherhood of wine lovers) in the 16th century, the place was closed because it was considered too licentious. A wink of history, the Maison de Bois is now a bar-restaurant.
The Ursuline Museum is a landmark monument in Macon and is worth a visit for its three departments (archaeology, ethnology, fine arts) as well as for its history. Built in the 17th century, the current buildings were first dedicated to the education of young girls by the Ursulines; during the Revolution, they were replaced by a men's prison. During the 20th century, the place was used as a barracks and a people's house before becoming a museum in 1968.
