This museum contains a private eclectic family collection. Based in a town house, it felt just like being in someone's home. Absolutely charming, and an added bonus is that it is one of the few museums open on a Tuesday.

Unless you've a passion for painting... and Grade B painting in particular... don't bother. Lovely building nice staff but the collection is really sort of boring. The collectors, apparently, didn't want to collect the "top" art of a period... their interest was seemingly in the secondary painters. There is a reason they were the "B" painters and rarely remember because... More

If you wish to see a 17th Century Villa with period furniture this is a must. Gorgeous rooms. Exceptional art collection. Expecially enjoyed the bedroom apartment, with its vibrant furniture and furnishings.

Very nice collection of 16th thru 19th century paintings displayed among period furniture in this 17th century mansion. We especially enjoyed viewing the "apartment" on the second floor of the Magnin family who owned the villa and collected the art.
