Installed in the former Urbanist convent, this museum presents a large number of documents, objects and equipment related to the Sainte Barbe Brotherhood and Lille's city defences. 3000 objects are on display: rifles from 1777 to 1945, knives and two exceptional cannons, the famous Gribeauval cannons that Napoleon Bonaparte offered to the canonneers.
