    I make abstraction of the host (an ATM would be more welcoming) came on the occasion of the exhibition but also to discover this place, we were very enthusiastic and hungry discoveries... That pleasure for this thematic exhibition but sad in the other rooms: completely empty spaces... of orphan works without explanation... the real culture is sold off in favour of architecture and elitist concept... I still recommend it for works very fine.

    This diverse collections Museum seems unfairly treated by the Michelin guide, which not only gives it one star: perhaps fearing shade to the Museum of the Michelin adventure who has himself three stars? Be that as it may, the Museum of art Roger Quilliot seems well worth the detour! Located in the neighborhood a little deprived of Montferrand, housed in a contemporary building built on the site of an old palace, yet it offers a course very interesting art in Auvergne, from the atrium where sculptures of Romanesque art auvergnat well highlighted, above all a chronological region art panorama, with collections from the 17th and 18th century at level 1 , and especially of the 19th century at level 2. The works are intelligently grouped by genres: history painting and sculptures, Oriental painting, landscapes and realistic portraits including some remarkable, Impressionist works. It ends with the levels-2 and -3, respectively dedicated to the wonderful Combe collection and contemporary art. The quality of the works presented is really superb.

    Very interesting exhibition of paintings from the Museum of Besançon. The art museum is worth a visit for him even and its permanent exhibits very rich and diversified. One is amazed

    The Museum is well decorated beautiful works but the theater to very questionable taste is off-putting. A beautiful background music would be more appropriate to appreciate these beautiful art collections of very high quality.

    David Courbet is a catchy title for this temporary exhibition, too little table of these two great painters, c is a regret, but this enabled us to see new works

    Nice Museum, rich enough. However for the lighting for oils aren't really good. It is rare to be able to look at a picture from the front because of brightness caused by the lights.
