Beautiful buildings housing an 1500-2017 works (the latter end of the spectrum a temporary exhibit). Unusual set up of art reproduction canvases hanging in the courtyard. Perfect photo opportunity. We went on a Friday at 11:30 am and pretty much had the place to ourselves....More

Worth a couple hour visit to peruse an enjoyable collection of European art, especially French art that includes works by famous artists and by less well-known local painters and sculptors.

This gallery surrounds a small park with traditional buildings. The collection is small but well worth seeing particularly for its collection of local artists. Allow 1-2 hours for the visit.

We were very impressed by the quality of the paintings inside the Musee des Beaux-Arts. A reasonable entrance fee and plenty to see. A visit of 1-2 hours to see it all as in two seperate buildings on the same site.

We enjoyed our visit to this museum. It has a small collection in a lovely building. The staff was great and we could have used more than the recommended time.

We were there on the first Sunday of the month, so since it was free, we enjoyed it doubly! There are two buildings connected with an interesting space with "make believe" painting backdrops for photo shoots. There are masters from the Renaissance through the present...More

Quite small but in a lovely setting and a nice collection. Many museums are exhausting. This is modest in size and it was not too busy. Well worth a visit.
