  • In this museum we just visited the rooms with Soulange work. Just beautiful and creative. The building itself, is very nice inside, large, people working there very polite and positive!  more »
  • We spent 1.5 hrs here on a Wednesday morning, the place was very quiet, and probably saw less than 50% of the exhibits.  more »

  • 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.
  • Subject of the exhibition in mid may was emotional. Even the museum guards has great art knowledge in this museum..great.
  • An excellent museum, earlier works on the ground floor, rising with time periods up to modern works on the top floor, all good quality. Many pieces by M. Fabre, a talented artist in his own right. A very instructive and enjoyable visit.
  • Beautiful Museum. Lots of French artists of course. Parking is difficult but we found a spot on the street. Lovely large park across the street from Museum.
  • Great place to visit. Not too crowded.
