  • We had expected to see more Ingres paintings but the museum was interesting and on lots of floors. I was most impressed by the two lower basement floors. 
  • The architecture of the building is beautiful however the rates are a bit expensive for a Museum whose paintings are not really renovated. I also expected to see the great Odalisque as well as the Turkish bath but I would have to find out that they were not in this museum... On the other hand part "Ingres and the modern" is great!

  • Planning a visit to the Museum, please note that from 12 to 2:00 pm it is closed for lunch, but it works on a daily basis. In addition to paintings by Ingres, and Bourdelle sculptures, which are the main feature of this Museum, great attention is worthy of the Palace of the Bishops of red brick, built on the site of the ruins of the castle of the English Black Prince. Visit worthwhile to start with the lower floors where open to explore the lower premises of the Castle. Ticket 7 euro, Russian bank cards why not pass.

  • Basement is really interesting lots of artifacts, upper floors lots of interesting paintings
  • Great diversity, I like it there...
  • The place is very nice but the sub soil is moldy because too much moisture, damage. The floor is average car. The expos are Ingres and you have to like, apart from the big picture of Jesus.
