The Musée La Piscine (the Swimming Pool Museum) located in the city of Roubaix in France, is a very unique museum because, as it names says, it is housed in a former swimming pool.
This swimming pool was built in the Art Deco style between 1927 and 1932 by the Lille architect Albert Baert. It was remodelled as a museum in 2000.
The garden outside hosts a few sculptures.
L’Homme des neiges (1960) - Euville’s stone sculpture by Eugène Dodeigne
Inside, the display is stunning with the reflection of the sculptures in the swimming pool water.
Jeune fille à la fontaine (1875) - Marble sculpture by Pierre-Alexandre Schoenewerk
Sirène Assise (circa 1958) – Plaster sculpture by Gilbert Privat
La chasse au nègre - Marble sculpture by Charles Marie Félix Martin
La petite châtelaine - Marble sculpture by Camille Claudel
Buste de Dalou (1883) – Bronze sculpture by Auguste Rodin
