    The museum itself is nice but you visit in a few minutes and in truth there's not much to see. Beautiful reconstructions on antique furniture but otherwise I was not excited.

    The Museum is installed in the Ganne Inn that greeted the painters who wanted to paint from nature in the early 19th century. The pieces have been preserved, with furniture and period objects. The original works painted on doors and shutters are exposed and you can still see a few paintings on the walls. Don't miss to watch the excellent video editing.

    Visit pleasant. The footprints left by the painters and staging in certain rooms make this enjoyable visit. Must-see Museum of the village because it represents the history and the starting point of the landscape painters. Do not miss the video.

    I did follow your prayer about the bells of St Martial, she was heard, you're going to be able to recite the Angelus at the sound of the bells, but woe to you if you do not count (you can find the text of the Angel Gabriel and Mary's response on the internet or in your book of mass... Now qd I have something to ask heaven I'll go through you: new Angel Gabriel🙏🙏🙏🙏 BERNARD

    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?
