  • You won't find the most famous paintings. Top executives are at the Musée d'Orsay. Fine if you are just passing through. You will see how to organize a modern Museum, with one person in each room. Then visit the village.

  • The local Museum offers the advantage to present paintings by Courbet in his birthplace, and situate the inspirations of the painter in the environment of a region to which it remained attached all his life. Of course you won't see the best-known originals (the burial at Ornans, the encounter or Hello monsieur Courbet, the workshop of the painter or the origin of the world), presented in the national museums (and especially Orsay); However, some are present in the form of reproductions (including burial at Ornans, a didactic commentary video projection). But different sources of inspiration (pastoral landscapes or hiking, with their famous limestone massifs that dominate, and that you can admire all around the city, but also other genre scenes, or even the amazing waves marine) are present, and intelligently guided. Currently an exhibition helps to understand the role played by Courbet at the Commune (he particularly protected art treasures of the Louvre, wanted to develop the creation of artists) and the vile persecution there then been subjected, and which has resulted in his clandestine exile for the Switzerland where he died.

  • The main works are not there but the presented paintings are beautiful. It is also an opportunity to discover other painters that have evolved in its environment. The Museum is beautiful, the rooms are spacious, well stocked library. See fault.

  • Beautiful Museum, well appointed, modern enough, and I must say that the glass above the Loue floor flowing is pretty fascinating, especially for the child. There's former elements of the building of origin, such as chimneys or walls. There is a bookshop quite provided with a section of books for children. You can access all levels in a wheelchair or stroller without worries thanks to the elevators. However, it would like to see more works by Courbet. We all know what are kept in other museums, but it would have been interesting to see copies or simply pictures of these works to have an overview of the work of the artist.
