  • Exhibition Joan Ponç very nice! The permanent exhibition is also rich in painting, sculpture... This museum is in harmony with this city: it's beautiful, it's quiet and it's rich history.

  • We visited the exhibition of Joan Pons, separate the Museum has a permanent exhibition that seems to be always the same.

  • Despite the preparation of a temporary exhibition, the Museum shows nice paintings from well-known painters and others less. A few sculptures by Manolo, the great friend of Picasso and ceramics adorned by Picasso with the predominant theme bullfighting. Friendly staff. Small shop fairly exhaustive.

  • So, small town in the south of France (and not the high-rent part you usually think of). Who would guess that there would be a top-tier museum located here? Well there is, and it is because so many of the artists of the previous turn of the century lived here or nearby--Picasso, Soutine, Dali, and many others. The museum has a lovely permanent collection of views of Ceret and also excellent special exhibits. A few years ago I saw an amazing display of the work of Jaume Plensa, a world-class sculptor from nearby Barcelona. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Very nice museum and it also changes regulary. Kids like it a lot too. There is always something to do for them in the museum.
  • A surprisingly spacious museum for such a small town, punching above its weight but not surprising considering the number of early modernist artists that have been inspired here. The permanent galleries were fairly small, but very well appointed. The temporary exhibition space is much larger; for us it was Dali, which wasn't to our tastes but which sensitively curated a very large selection of works to give us a sense of the man. All in all a very well-spent two hours.
  • Wonderful collection of the works of the best with a surprise or two thrown in.
  • Awesome galleries! I loved my visit! Well worth a visit
