The Musée d'Artagnan, between myth and reality

It is in his native village of Lupiac in the Gers that the Museum dedicated to d'Artagnan welcomes you.
This museum offers an exhibition with audio guide headsets in two languages, French and English. Numerous documents and reproductions of works also retrace the authentic history of d'Artagnan in its historical context.
A statue of this pure Gers hero, wax mannequins, and sound and musical atmospheres evocative of the period complete the recreation of the atmosphere of "yesteryear".
The Museum also presents the legendary hero through a collection of illustrated books on Les Trois Mousquetaires by Alexandre Dumas, and film posters.

A video room also offers a twenty-minute film, "Charles de Batz Castelmore d'Artagnan", which draws a parallel between the romantic situations, the fruit of Alexandre Dumas' inventive spirit, and the reality of the character.

On the central square of the village of Lupiac you can admire the first equestrian statue of d'Artagnan, a monumental bronze statue by the famous sculptor Daphné Du Barry.

The commune of Lupiac is looking for objects, engravings, drawings, documents related to the real d'Artagnan or to the legendary one.


The names of the donors will be entered in the museum's guestbook and on this site, for those who wish to do so.

D'Artagnan, mousquetaire du Roi

Click on the image

DArtagnan, capitaine-lieutenant des Grands Mousquetaires du Roy est le résultat de plusieurs années de nouvelles recherches sur la vie et la carrière du plus célèbre des mousquetaires. Des investigations menées à travers toute lEurope, sur les lieux mêmes où il a vécu et où il est intervenu, ont permis de découvrir des éléments inattendus qui éclairent dun jour nouveau ce personnage, qui fut bien plus quun héros de roman de cape et dépée. Homme de confiance de la reine Anne dAutriche et du Cardinal Mazarin, il a passé plus de trente années au service du roi Louis XIV. Contemporain de Molière et de Lulli, Charles de Batz de Castelmore dArtagnan a été nommé gouverneur de Lille en 1872, un an avant sa mort à Maastricht.
