  • For those who love primitive Italian painting or who wants to discover it, a visit to this museum is a must. The Palace itself is very beautiful and very well designed course. This museum gives a good idea of the splendour that was to decorate the Palace of the Popes at the same time.

  • Museum quite confidential but which contains beautiful works! The collection of Italian paintings by Campana, rich Italian amateur of the 19th century in which Napoleon III bought most of his pieces, is worth a visit. As beautiful paintings! The presentation of the works is simple, but allows you to take full advantage. Friendly attentive staff. A museum not to be missed for lovers!

  • Great information, history, and wonderful atmosphere. However barely any staff speak English, and not every room has an English translated info card
  • I was fortunate to visit this place......an amazing architecture....
  • Date: 22/08/2016 site visit: Musée du Petit Palais Este Museum is found in one corner of the Esplanade where is located the Palace of the popes, exactly next to the mountain of Rocher des Doms. It houses mostly Italian and Provencal 13th century and paintings 16th. There are also Gothic and Romanesque sculptures. The entrance with the PASS card (free) is 3 euros.

  • Interesting Museum for lovers of Italian art and religious art. I found the Museum too repetitive and dated in its pedagogical approach.

  • I really liked the petit palais Museum, but it's pretty little immersive and interactive!
