This was a great find. Though compared to so many other museums in France, it is rather small, it offers exquisite works of art, particularly portraiture that connects to the region. It is a restful place and surprisingly not overrun with visitors.

Some lovely paintings which are free to see. Sadly the lighting doesn't allow you to enjoy them to their full beauty.

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
