  • Set over three floors, a strong range of paintings from the 14th to the 19th Century. Almost exclusively French painters, including Delacroix, Poussin, Le Brun, particularly strong on classical and ne...  more »
  • The Museum is very nice: permanent collection, of course Soulages tables are to be seen, but the more "classic" collection is as varied and interesting. And until April 30, big favorite for the temporary exhibition "François Rouans" whose paintings on woven fabrics we have delighted! Some paintings contain so much detail that you can admire them for a long time and discover all their wealth! Well, I'm excited... but to see!

  • Wonderful collection of European painting, above all, very nice framework. Enjoy hours of lunch, we have the privilege to walk peacefully, with the space that we enjoy ever in Paris... Audio guide useful. Very friendly staff.

  • 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.
