I was super with their art installation outside the museum. There were multiple paintings in a row, cut in the middle and you could walk through them. It felt that i was part of the painting. After walking the first time, you could turn around...More

Got here early but nice to wait in the little park overlooking the mairie where people were having wedding photos taken. Not crowded at all and has some really interesting art work in a couple of buildings either side of the gardens. Impressionism and modernism...More

The art work is split between 2 buildings in beautiful settings and is well worth a visit. It's only 5 euros entry per person so we thought it was good value for money. It's a mix of art and sculptures with some impressive pieces.

Paintings were great and interesting. Collection was nice but not too large to handle also as a short side show. The lightning in building was horrible and great paintings were not as their best and building inside was boring. Gate inside went through litter boxes

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.
