Thinking that the Musee Des Beaux Arts would be on the same scale as the art displayed in Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery was a mistake. Whilst there are few works of art by the internationally well-known artists, this collection displays breadth and depth. It's free and could absorb the visitor for a couple of hours. In February, there... More

A free art gallery with some beautiful paintings which are well restored. . Very interesting. I was surprised that they didn't do a guide in English and also watch their opening times....they close for lunch ( but it is in France).

Possibly this museum has some worthy artworks, but I doubt it. When I tried to visit on a Saturday, it was closed for lunch. To me, this is a clear sign that the museum is not considered seriously by the municipality, but is maintained only because it's perceived as a civic necessity, to be run for as little outlay as...

Not entirely my bag (pre/ post Impressionist more to my taste) but a fair municipal / provincial collection nonetheless. And it's entirely free, so do pop in when in town.

Great Brazilian collection upstairs invigilated by the most beautiful invigilator who perfectly complimented the stunningly colourful exhibits . Downstairs was so-so.

Easy to find in the main square. There was an exhibition of Corot and northern light at the time of our visit, which was well curated. Staff were helpful. Good visit.

Is what you get here. Nothing outstanding, but a well laid out exhibition of interesting works. I liked it all, I didn't dislike anything!!

Good place to spend an hour or so, and it's free. Check the opening times first on their website. Bags needed to be handed in at the front desk. It has a permanent collection on the first floor (portraits, still-life, etc.) and had 2 other temporary exhibitions while we were in Carcassonne: a collection on the theme of Don Quixote,... More
