  • Museum very infrequent, garnishes and well maintained, beautiful and full of history. Well explained and laid out, I recommend a jump in history.

  • the collection of Italian painting is absolutely brilliant. Yet this museum is often little frequented. I go there regularly when I have guests in my house at 10 km d Avignon. Damage: the Museum is closed on Tuesdays (as all the State Museums). Make an exception for the Avignon festival (month of July) would be quite logical because there are lots of tourists who may not have all the time in the theater and there seems t he a few unemployed in France

  • Even though it is all religious art the quality is very good and the paintings are clean. Easy to follow the exhibits up and down the various floors.  more »

  • Great information, history, and wonderful atmosphere. However barely any staff speak English, and not every room has an English translated info card
  • Nice paintings
  • I was fortunate to visit this place......an amazing architecture....
  • The critical last is unfair or addresses has an expert. It is a museum larger than we think, very rich and deserving a visit.

  • A nice Museum for those who love the paintings of christ and those surrounding it. Sometimes there are other exhibitions in the course!
