  • We really enjoyed this museum. It is small but has a variety of rooms. This includes a few Degas, one Van Gogh, and several other impressionists.

  • Some good paintings and sketches in this museum but not that much of it for an entrance fee of E8. It was interesting but didn't meet my expectations.

  • A good Musee to pop into when you have time for a short visit. A small collection which contains some fascinating art work. The Degas, for me were particularly interesting.

  • We came across this house by accident but found a delightful little gem (hosting a Matisse exhibition on the second floor when we visited). Apart from that there are permanent artworks collected by Jacques Doucet a couturier at the end of 19th century, and Jean Angladon. Interesting rooms on the first floor contain antique furniture pieces, ceramics, paintings and a lovely library room with some impressive and important French literature. All collected by people who clearly had a passion for art. We loved it. Recommended for anyone who enjoys art.
  • Small but really worth a visit. A little gem, with all sorts of interesting rooms and artworks collected with love. Matisse exhibition now worth seeing too.
  • Pretty disappointed. Lovely lady selling the tickets but was put off by a male guide who was less than welcoming and did not know how to politely ask that I leave my bag in a locker. My French is not bad, I could have understood but he was abrupt and rude and then shadowed us around the exhibits as if we were up to no good. There are some late 19th/early 20th century works which were my main reason for visiting and are advertised in all the publicity. Especially wanted to see some Van Gogh paintings near to where the work was executed, but found only one. Lots of Degas and Matisse, which I did enjoy.
  • Hard to find but worth it (francais ci-dessous). An exquisite small collection of some great paintings you will never see anywhere else. Accessible to the elderly and handicapped. C’est tout petite mais superbe! La collection a les pieces tres rares. Super acquillants et disponibles pour les vielles et handicappees
  • A good place to see the Matisses and their development. Quite a few other artists’ works also, and a Picasso or two, three... one Van Gogh of a train at a bend in the line which shows well how he focussed in on a view which is then evidenced by his painting technique. That could be a pile of horsefeathers or possibly quite insightful :)
