  • We visited the Museum with my 2 children of 3 and 5 years. The visit went well and was very nice through the little booklet of puzzles given out to children at the entrance. They were able to look at the works and play explorers. The staff is very nice. We will return

  • Works of art interesting but a part of the Museum is invaded by a gigantic art works absolutely horrible. The architecture of the building is very beautiful. But what fractious officials of reception? DISMAL

  • The positive: free for students. We love this free access to culture. And we could get lost for hours in front of all these works.

  • A collection permanent unfortunately close to nothingness... A very nice study of Géricault for the raft of the Medusa to see however, as well as a few (too few) very beautiful pieces of unknown artists.

  • your presentation of the temporary exhibition on a series of sites is not at all practical for someone who wants to get to the Museum
