The proprietor of a wine shop suggested that my husband and I visit this museum in lieu of some better known tourist attractions such as The Louvre. His advice was spot on! We saw the Perugino, Master of Raphael exhibition there, and simply enjoyed the environment: The museum is located in a 19th century mansion, and aside from artworks, features... More

The house is beautiful but the temporary exhibition was very disappointing for us, not "our cup of tea". The museum was free, and we should have just done that. Will learn now to check carefully what the exhibitions are before paying €12 each .

I've been here three years in a row, and thought the previous exhibitions were well-conceived and well-mounted - Venetian landscapes, Victorian romantics and Pre-Raphaelites, combining interesting subjects and hard-to-find works. This year, they are featuring Il Perugino, a Renaissence painter more or less a stylistic predecessor of Raphael. Though it may appeal to serious art students, this just wasn't a... More

Why did I wait so long to visit this world class institution ? there are treasures here that should not be missed. I will return and see all that I missed previously.

This late 19th century home turned museum is a delight. The personal collection of a wealthy couple from the late 19th century, it is mainly French and Italian art. The house and the collection were donated as a museum by the widow when she passed away about 100 years ago. Wonderful to see the art as they would have placed... More

Wonderful small museum. Go early in the day to avoid a line. Sunday brunch is very crowded but cafe seems like it might be worth another visit.

If you know the Isabella Stewart Gardner museum in Boston you'll know what to expect from this museum based on private collection of enormously wealthy nineteenth-century power couple. A mixture of wonderful art and design and the worst kind of 'tasteful' luxury--perfect of its kind. I saw a terrific exhibition of Perugino and was really glad I went, plus it's... More

Incredible what a family of wealth accumulated in art from all over the globe. We visited on our last day as it was a short walk from the apartment we rented. Wish we had time to try the cafe, it looked lovely.

I have been to this museum three times. Each time, it was to see their current temporary exhibit. This year, it was an axhibitt of works of Perugin, the Italian master. There was a predominance of religious paintings since the artist worked for the pope. There are some lovely works on wood depicting the Nativity and the Coronation of Our... More

touring this off-the-beaten-path museum is enjoyable for getting a glimpse into life of the upper classes in the 1800's. The museum can be crowded even in the off-season, which makes viewing the private chambers a bit of a challenge, but definitely worthwhile.
