  • The small museum ' Musee du Petit Palais ' gives us an idea to be ruled by the Popes from Avignon. Coins, tokens and even wines-everything was faeito at the request of the Popes. They get out of Avignon, but left his legacy. A part of him is in the Musee du Petit Palais worth a trip there. Meet the co that was the center of power in Europe in the medieval period..

  • The collections of Italian painters are breathtaking, the framework for the establishment of a climate of study and contemplation.

  • 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!
