  • Poetic experience and redolent of the old Barbizon of Stevenson, Millet and Corot.
  • Museum in the heart of an authentic village. Adventure and visit very interesting and above all very rewarding! Entry waivers (free, so) are proposed to a lot of people (according to their job, age, etc.). Very affordable, what better way to discover the art of the years 18XX?

  • A priori, this museum does not mine but there are plenty of interesting to glean information. I recommend to start with good quality video which tells the story of the painters in breaking with the Academy.

  • A pleasure to discover after the superb Museum Stéphane Mallarmé, this Inn Museum and its still authentic decor, haunted by the memory of the painters who founded the school of Barbizon video well done, nice atmosphere in short an essential visit.
