  • Fabulous building and location but art collection a bit narrow. A couple of nice Dufy paintings and the best room contained work by Valery.
  • Fantastic museum, really worth a visit!
  • Interesting museum and tasty brasserie and occasional nightclub in the afternoon
  • Permanent collection is not great, but an Aboriginal art exposition was a nice surprise. Pass sanitaire was not required which is worrying. Although limit of people allowed inside was respected.
  • Nice little museum in a calm area of Sete with some interesting pieces - would say maximum 1 hour to walk around and see everything. Great views of the sea just outside
