  • I had a lot of people of the a priori on this still living painter to whom they dedicated a Museum in 2014. I must admit he was surprised, already by the exterior architecture of the Museum, very modern. Then the tour is pretty intuitive, and we learn from the first works that soulages is not only to black. Then we see the evolution of his work (which deserves a tour I think), his work on different subjects, with a lot of color. The part on the outrenoir is fascinating, with varied arrays and well exposed: filters light on the windows of the Museum let appear the amazing reflections of color on these black people who reveal lots of light through the effects of texture of the master. In two hours, you take full view, there for his money. € 9 without the temporary exhibition. A must for me who am not a big fan of contemporary art at the base.

  • Must absolutely stop and ride on this square in order to appreciate fully this beautiful architectural ensemble. The works in the permanent collection are beautifully hung and shows the path of the artist. It's a deep breath!

  • Exceptional visit in a suitable and well thought-out framework. A permanent exhibition of high quality with a rich and varied collection. A temporary exhibition (Calder) interesting.

  • Omg is faboulous
  • Certainly the city's jewel. Fair option for a rainy afternoon with the kids. The retrospective of works leading to the "Outrenoir" paintings is enlightening. the Picasso exhibition is small and intimate, very pleasant.
  • A very interesting building housing the works of famous painter Pierre Soulages, master of the colour black. Worth the trip to Rodez alone but do not miss the beautiful cathedral too!
  • We went to see the exposition Picasso and Soulagés. Great building great surrounding park and great exhibition. ..Soulages at the museum Fabre in Montpellier is better I think
  • The museum shop is quite expensive but has a nice selection.
