    Especially do not miss. In addition it was the last Dianche so free. This museum is not very large but worth a look for people that have art in general murals Calder and mobile, Picasso Ernst and others!

    Fine museum with works by Calder and Picasso. Partners with Centre Pompidou definitely a must to visit.

    During a day spent at Vézelay we had the chance to visit this very beautiful Museum. We saw among other works of Picasso, Fernand Leger and the Calder exhibition. Must-have! Don't miss lunch at "the pot-luck", through the extraordinary library "Gold stars" (rich of varied works) and see the Basilica of course... You will spend a wonderful day...

    Amazing to discover the number of great artists a1960 de1930 who succeeded in Vezelay following Rolland and Zervos with his art books. Not to be missed if you like the beautiful places and the modern art of Miro, Calder and Picasso to Kandinsky to Giacometti. To see.
