Great exhibition on there at the moment worth a look. Raoul Dufy's designs were also used on fabric which was amazing and there is one long painting there depicting the different eras, from the Philosphers to modern day

To access the galleries is a staircase, I did not see a lift. The galleries divide into two, the first being a reasonably large collection of mainly 17th and 18th century art with some furniture, fine clocks and porcelain. The second gallery changes often and exhibits a single person' work. The whole is not enormous and an hour or so... More

The paintings are quite old and not of great interest. We had been told this, but on a damp afternoon what else is there to do? The lady on duty was not friendly.

A perfectly sized (for me) museum of mainly paintings. Perfect to dip into during our exploration of the medieval city.

It has a small permanent collection of average 19th century works. The special exhibitions are interesting but obviously you check out what's on. They don't just have paintings:at the moment it's a collection of ball gowns. It's free and just on the edge of the Bastide at Place Gambetta. (currently being totally redesigned)

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.
