  • Provide a good morning for the visit to this Museum, which treat the eyes. Surprise to see the copy of the table the judgment last of MICHAEL Angel, as it had been done originally without the veils that hide the anatomy of the characters. The top floor is super modern... good... not to our taste... no doubt miss us to imagination in front of a completely black picture...

  • The best Museum in the province. The permanent collection is superb with arrays of relieves. Temporary exhibitions are remarkable. Some are worth the trip from abroad (Bazilles..)

  • 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.
