  • - Amazing collection! - Time: 1h is enough, but you'll need a bit more if you want to follow all the explanations. (To take into account, closing time 18.00). - Price: 8€
  • A remarkable gallery, rarely crowded. An asrounding collection to find outside a 'major' gallery. A roomful of Bonnards! No less than 5 Cranachs... I could go on. The terrace cafe is a perfect spot for a nice lunch. Being France, the gallery closes for lunch. Just set yourself down, order something tasty, a good rose helps too.... then have a relaxed afternoon browsing some brilliant art. The building alone is pretty stunning, a 16th century merchant's place.
  • Really nice collection of paintings and artefacts of medieval times
  • The museum has a lot of different art. I actually discovered a new painting style that I'd not seen before. Just an FYI, this is not one of the museums that is free on the first Sunday of the month.
  • Despite not being free on the first Sunday of the month, the Museum had a ton of great art.
