  • The Antoine Bourdelle expo was great: very provided, beautiful pieces on display, with some relevant information. Especially since I didn't know all this sculptor ps. Ingres artworks are also beautiful pieces even though of course all are not present in this museum. The most historical part on Montauban is also interesting in the lower floors.

  • The building is notable, especially the room of the Black Prince, for the rest collection diverse, and somewhat disparate, but between a bit of Bourdelle, Ingres and the rest we're having a nice time.

  • 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.

  • 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.
