Musee des Beaux-Arts, Angers
(4.3/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
A stunning example of turn-of-the-century architecture, Musee des Beaux-Arts is complete with a radiant central patio that lights the work of Picasso, Rubens, and Kandinsky. The museum houses 11 of Kandinsky’s influential works, to be exact. After you’ve been inspired by the brushstrokes of days past, then check out the Grand d’Art wing, completed in 2013 by architect Stanton Williams. Don’t leave out the Chapel of the Oratory, which the museum annexed. It’s no longer a place of worship, but it still offers a welcome respite. Add Musee des Beaux-Arts to your Angers travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Angers tour planner.

  • Beautiful paintings and a panorama of different eras. The accompaniment of a guide, audio guide or in flesh and bone is recommended to capture the subtleties of some paintings.

  • The province has nothing to envy to Paris the capital... culturally (especially in Art) - and is proof of Angers (147 000 inhabitants) with its Museum of natural sciences, his Gallery David D'Angers, the Artothèque, the Jean-Lurçat Museum of contemporary tapestry (unique) and its magnificent Museum of fine arts - advantage: it's cheap and unlike high-profile where exhibitions is lining up to go , where we jostle to try see a canvas to the BA we quietly walks to discover major works that was sometimes entrapercues in books or Art magazines - a real good time to recommend to all.
