This small museum seems forgotten. It is located at walking distance to the train station. For a very small fee, you will be able to see a nice and eclectic collection of European art that would be the envy of any mid-size city. I admit...More

This is a good small city art gallery. Iwould recommend a visit. There are problems with attitudes of some staff members though. The receptionist was late in arriving for the 1pm scheduled opening. I was asked to wait whilst she prepared the computer. I waited...More

I probably wouldn't have bothered visiting the gallery, but the reviews here were complimentary, and I was passing by anyway ! The collection isn't amazing, but some of it is very enjoyable. And the Rodin sculpture that's currently on display is really quite impressive. The...More

The staff is very courteous. The museum is small, but if you are looking for eye-catching artwork it is a must-visit place for Calais. The price isn't bad and some of the works, particularly Rodin and Cote, were really stunning.

Rodin sculptures are the first exhibits, and very impressive they are. Seen close up makes one realise the genius of the sculptor. Lots of paintings too, by a number of different artists. Pleasantly laid out, and low entrance fee
