Musee Champollion

Jean François Champollion, the decipherer of Egyptian hieroglyphics, was born in Figeac in 1790. The Museum of Writing takes the visitor on a journey following Champollion’s footsteps that gives them the opportunity to take part in the adventure of the written word and consider its place in our future world.
