  • This is a small museum that punches above its weight and is nicely curated. Perfect size for a leisurely visit and has some pieces from well-known artists such as Cezanne and Picasso. Loved that...

  • Nice exhibitions. There were even special exhibitions that only exist for a period of time. The staff was very friendly. You could see many pictures of Picasso. In addition, with each ticket there is an additional free ticket for another exhibition in the city
  • Very interesting museum. We where supprised by the extensive Egyptian artifacts in the exhibit. The explanation's for them are shown in both French and English. A audio explanation is available as well for a small fee. Generally a well laid out museum.
  • Small museum with some interesting paintings and sculptures from Giacometti. Good for a 30 to 1h minutes visiting.
  • Not as extensive but had a few pleasant surprises like a Picasso and a Rembrandt. The other section was closed off so we couldn't see the other collection.
  • Absolutely lovely! The museum itself is a peaceful of art and the permanente collection is very nice. Polite staff and very affordable entrance fee. Recommended! )
