  • Beautiful buildings, beautiful collections. Our passage of 1 hour 45 has not allowed us to see everything. Hung not at all with the face theme proposed. Don't miss Soulages at the top of the building

  • Big collection of art and beautiful paintings, saw some masterpieces worth seeing. I hated the contemporary art exhibitions, but well I love only REAL art.
  • A good art gallery. Not huge but good to while away a couple of hours in.
  • I really enjoy visiting museums, however there were not many people there and had the most unpleasant experience as the security guard followed me from room to room and was looking at me as I was looking at paintings, as if I were going to damage something. It was so unpleasant I had to leave.
  • Overrated and too expensive. There are much better museums in other French cities that are "gratuit".
  • Subject of the exhibition in mid may was emotional. Even the museum guards has great art knowledge in this museum..great.
