Lovely museum with a smaller selection of exhibits -

The cost to enter is very reasonable, the museum small but interesting. Although there are no signs, photos are not allowed.

It is a museum for the painting lovers! There are paints coming from the XV - XXI ages, mainly from the regional painters. In June-August 2014, the museum was closed for repairs and temporary expositions organization.

The museum is being packed up and most of the art work has been moved to the Pompidou Centre temporarily as the city is building a new modern building to house their comprehensive collection. Currently charging 3 euro entry but there is so little to see. The new building is scheduled to open in 2018.

This does not even deserve to be called a museum. Third rate art. Yes, there is one Monet, but it is not worth going through everything else. it looked as if they were packing the place up, plastic and crates everywhere...amazingly unprofessional. Honestly, I am surprised it is even mentioned in the guidebooks. So not worth it. "Death of Marat"... More

A very unexciting art museum, with very few decent paintings in my opinion. The one I particularly wanted to see 'The Death of Marat' was on loan to Liverpool! There was some nice modern stained glass and some marquetary furniture which was exceptional but in general very poor.

Only the display on Champagne was open but it was most interesting ranging from information to art to frivolity. Musee is easy to find and well worth the visit.

This small museum is currently showing an exhibition on Champagne that draws some exquisite glass, paintings, and objet d'art from all over the world, including a champagne flute from the collection of Marie Antoinette, drawings by Picasso, one of the oldest champagne glasses in the world and wonderful Art Deco champagne posters.

The permanent collection of art was nice but the part we liked best was the temporary exhibit about the history of champagne (the drink) and how it is linked to Champagne (the region). It was free for students so we didn't feel bad just browsing rapidly (we stay about 30 minutes total, which was enough for us to see everything).

The two rooms we saw were 20th century art. The rest was temporaily closed. They reduced the ticket price by 1 euro as a gesture but still too little to see, we were in and out in half an hour!
