  • Taking advantage of a business trip, I made a quick detour to the Musée FABRE, not long enough for my taste. Thanks to the site visit are well presented. Prefer painting them and decorative arts

  • 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.
