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.

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!!

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

Worth a visit if you have time on your hands in Carcassonne. The best of the ancient paintings are the portraits. The twentieth century stuff is generally not of a high standard.
