Le Musée de Tessé is the Museum of Fine Arts in Le Mans. It offers numerous guided tours on various themes and is located just inside Tessé Park. The building is a former bishop’s palace, itself built on the site of the former mansion of Maréchal de Tessé. It is famous for its large Egyptian collection which contains the reconstructed tombs of Nefertari, the wife of Ramses II and the mayor of Thebes. All of this is located underground in a specially built basement. There are several sculptures outside within the park including a nude lady painter and the modern glass sculpture Temps imparti eclipse created by Jean-Bernard Métais. It is actually a huge hourglass.
