  • Wonderful collection of medieval religious art. Well set out in an old palace. However this is all there is so avoid if this is not your cup of tea. 
  • Very nice collection of works of the 13/14/15/16/17 ° centuries perfectly presented in the beautiful rooms of this former archevechee - a magnificent Botticelli has not to miss the Museum staff is very courteous and friendly a beautiful moment to pass

  • 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!
