  • It would be a shame to move to Barbizon and not to open the door of this well-organized Museum. A remarkable presentation film subtitled in Japanese for the many tourists due the empire of the rising sun.

  • This museum enjoyed it very much. Nice discovery as if you were at the time of the Barbizon school. Very nice and a movie that makes you live this time. You'll want to go in the forest and nearby... Visit the House of Jean-François Millet, you'll definitely love Barbizon!

  • A living museum and original leaving much room for imagination. In each room we see a painter. A complement to the Musée d'Orsay.

  • 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.

  • Museum to do if you go to barbizon and 30 min video to see if you have pre impressionism. We highly recommend.

  • 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.
