Musee des Beaux-Arts, Angers

4.3
#4 of 8 in Museums in Angers
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.

  • Very beautiful parts both of Contemporary Art to Art classic always a pleasure for people who love art. This museum is very nice and accessible to people with reduced mobility by the garden of fine arts, one-time workshops for children: register in advance because the number of participants is limited and very popular workshops. Book restaurant attached to the walls of the Museum, preferably. The store is pretty small but very offers works produced confections and interesting books.

  • Angers welcomes its tourists. The museums have a unique password that is worth a year. The Museum of Beaux-Arts guard little surprises like Fragonard, Lemoyne (who painted the ceiling of Versailles) and some current artists. Worth playing with the puzzles in front of the works.

  • Remarkably nice staff. Impressive building with nice outside neon art from Francois Morrelet. A good flower painting from Tilburg born artist Gérard van Spaendonck. Small but adorable modern art section.
  • I really liked the Museum. Many painters and sculptors are fascinating for its beauty and perfection. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Recommend.

  • To do, be it between adults or with children animation during the school holidays. Really beautiful both on the framework that welcomes us as the quality of the exhibitions. Probably one of the best museums of the Angevins.
