Now containing the Sociétë Archéologique de Touraine, the Hótel Goüin is a fine Renaissance style mansion in the oldest part of the city. Built by René Gardette a rich silk merchant, it was later owned by the Goüin family of bankers. In 1940, the building was badly damaged by a fire caused by a bombing raid on the city centre. It has been restored and is in use as a museum.
