  • This museum is a little weird, I began to visit the Museum of the Navy, that was fantastic, I loved it. Follow the plan of the visit, just after being inside this museum is that I realized I was already in the musee des beaux arts. I didn't like the Museum. When purchasing the ticket to the Museum of weapons the ticket to the Museum of fine arts is already included, so enjoy and visit.

  • the staff was friendly. the tour however was extremely short and not necessarily interesting (and yet I am open minded and always looking for the positives) but €5 for less than 15 minutes of tour seems a bit limited. Nevertheless, I advise the Museum for less than 25 years old (free). Good visit!
