  • The museum juxtaposes ancient art with more modern pieces, and the list of 'modern' artists reads like a role-call of the top end Europeans. In practice much of the modern work is small-scale, and the...  more »
  • A large collection of ancient Egyptian art, Greek, Roman whose Armors, helmets, swords have liked children, as well as collections of coins. Interactive screens which were well appreciated also (for adults and children). And above all, many works of great artists of the 20th century inspired by the ancient art (Picasso, Cocteau...): a nice surprise!

  • A little gem in the middle of nowhere :) really worth a visit, everything is in English and French including many touch screens. Stunning building inside. You can go in and out as many times as you like during the day.
  • An unbelievable collection. A real gem of a museum that displays its pieces in a refreshing manner, placing contemporary artist alongside the classics. Definitely a must-visit place.
  • The South of France is littered with great museums, and I've visited a lot of them in 2013. But of them all the Musée d'Art Classique is the sole to give you a morning-sized visit of such eclecticism and excellence. You want Greek, Roman or Egyptian antiquities? It has them. Old Masters? By the yard. Art by the twentieth century greats associated with the region? Yup, those too. Cutting edge contemporary? Plenty of that as well. Which could make it sound superficial. It isn't. There is an intellectual underpinning to the museum layout that becomes apparent as you wander past art of different eras that is juxtaposed in an imaginative and attractive manner. Think a rich stock of the British Museum and Tate Modern reduced, intensified and served under the sun of the south of France. Indispensable.
  • Beautiful and exciting. The Museum is on three floors one more beautiful than the other, well organized and the exhibited works well. Very nice and interesting you have combined the ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome: with the modern. The welcome was fantastic, staff very helpful. There is the toilet and very clean. To ascend or descend there is also an elevator. A souvenir shop is good and the prices.
