This early 17th-century residence, former home of the Chevalier de Trévet, houses the Mathon-Durand Museum of arts and traditions, founded in 1823. The house, which survived the bombings of World War II, features a brick and half-timbered gable and a Henri IV style façade.
The Louis XV salon displays substantial collections of works from the Bray area, plates from the region, headdresses, firebacks, sacred art.. and old surgical instruments. Two canons, cast in 1792 and presented to the National Guard of Neufchâtel, are exhibited in the arms room.
