A quick visit to this art gallery

A quick visit to this gallery was very worth while. We looked at the paintings, mostly by local artists, in the permanent exhibition and the variety and quality was interesting

Spent about an hour looking at the permanent exhibition and also the current temporary exhibition. Loved the latter. Worth a visit!

Although it was stiflingly hot inside the Museum the exhibition was breathtaking. I studied art at school and to actually see these famous artists "in the flesh" was wonderful. The museum is an interesting building - I wanted to move in and live there.

We went to see a Dufy exhibition which was wonderful. We did not have any time to visit the other collections on offer.

We recently revisited this museum and found a fascinating collection of locally related exhibits. The presentation was appropriate and interesting in a cool and encouraging atmosphere. It's a place to go to avoid the inclement weather that can sometimes strike the visitor too!

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.

If you visit Carcassonne before 3rd October, make the time to see the Raoul Dufy exhibition. The gallery is punching well above its weight with this one. And there is a lift but you have to ask.

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

Thank mona244
