    For those interested a little to the art, it makes sense to visit this museum. Composed of two wings, it must start by the South Wing in order to visit it in chronological order. Mention special at the "Expiring Mozart" work as well as the statue of the God Apollo. The Museum is located in the gardens of the Town Hall, small but lovely and very useful for a break between the two wings.

    The most important Museum in Bordeaux, hosted by the beautiful Rohan Palace, is divided into two wings, one South, dedicated to arrivals from 400 to 700, is a ' North ', which incorporates the path started in the other wing down to the twentieth century. The works exhibited are attributable mainly to schoolchildren of the Grand Masters, little known to most people but none the less appreciable. Outside the Group of followers some works of Rubens, of great value, and selections, less impact, but still relevant, of paintings of Delacroix, Renoir and Corot. Overall then there are several valuable works on display, even some masterpieces. Unfortunately the Museum suffers from a certain lack of homogeneity in the Organization and arrangement of works, which makes relatively complicated follow the theme that the curators had in mind, leaving the visitor a certain feeling confused and blighting the overall quality of the experience.

    The Museum of fine arts of Bordeaux is a collection of interesting and pleasant to see, do not stop at the sometimes rude staff.

    The museum has a great collection of fine arts held in two separate buildings. The natural lighting in the first building is from the ceiling which means that viewing some of the paintings on a bright day is difficult because of reflection/glare. However, don't let this distract from the stunning pieces on display.

    A lovely way to spend a few hours on an overcast Sunday afternoon. It has a lovely selection of fine art and sculpture with plenty of famous names.. Matisse and Rubens to name a few.

    not large but interesting. not many works of the big-name artists that we see in like orsay or louvre, but there are indeed some inspiring pieces. not crowded, so it's a good place to sit down and study just one certain work. and very lovely staffs! the old gentleman at the entrance of the north wing even said thank you to me in my mother tongue. but well, it's true that not all works there are of top quality, the problems of several are obvious (one arm much longer than the other in a classical painting, for example). the architecture itself and the garden are beautiful though.

    Not well curated. Hard to see what some of the pictures were. Printed guides not very helpful.

    I've never been that close to a Rembrandt before (well, now "school of Rembrandt", actually) - and not under glass. No-one breathing down your neck, either. There are some small Manets and a few other big names. Non-flash photography is permitted. I went on a Sunday and it was free.

Where to stay in Bordeaux

Most hotels in Bordeaux sit conveniently located a stone's throw away from the train station. Look to Quinconces Square and Gambetta Square for high-end hotels. Those who prefer more budget-friendly accommodations may want to seek out a youth hostel--a relatively recent addition to the city. To secure a spot here, make sure to book ahead of time. In addition to hotels and hostels, choose from guest rooms in a typical Bordeaux house, or a family-friendly beachside campsite.
