  • Very good idea, this expo. The goal is to make us discover the art like a blind. You can touch a few copies of works. But coming with children, they could, for once, touch. And that alone is a success. Who is a parent knows how many times we have to say "Don't touch". Suddenly, the part where it cannot touch is much easier to manage! Beautiful Museum, which deserves that we take the time to visit. The passage of the old rooms of works at the contemporary is sometimes abrupt.

  • Quick ambulation in the labyrinthine building. A few masterpieces and the pleasure of touching some reproductions. Nice guide. Want to go back on a different pace...

  • Very educational and interesting exhibitions. A good organization, but sometimes a little wait at the registers: the price of success!

  • Bazille exhibition was absolutely fantastic. Beautifully layed out and all encompassing. Air- conditioning quite cold so take a second layer to wear. Lovely shop and the reading room was a delight.
  • I heard from my local friends that one day isn't enough to see everything in Fabre and they were right. The museum is room after room full of amazing master pieces from known and not so popular artists. I recommend the place for all art lovers and for me it was one of Montpellier's main attractions.
  • Really nice museum! Great collection of Soulages paintings!
  • Lots of pictures of various painters, but for me a little to much, especially the modern pictures
  • Nicely curated collections. Very interesting, and the shop is lovely too.
