An collection of well displayed works of international significance in a very pleasing set of spaces. If taste is for modern work I would recommend doing the recommended route in reverse, as you can suffer museum burn out before you get there, as the "old masters" collection is really too good to skip.

This is a beautiful museum of art, and had it not been for a couple of odd things I would give it the full five points. The French cherish their art, and this extensive collection is beautifully displayed, with full attention to the quality of the lighting, sufficient space for the works, and lots of information conveniently available. The collection... More

Interesting exhibits. Rather cheap. Free for Paul Valéry University students. Nice museum shop. Watch out : it is better to do the visit in the order shown in the paper given at the checkout. It is a bit like being in a maze but it is not the case ;-)

I had made the Musee Fabre my priority having just a whole afternoon in Montpellier and had not been to it before. It's on the side of a tree covered promenade beyond the Tourist Office east of the Place de la Comedie. This is one of the best classic collections I've seen outside of Paris. The galleries are on several... More

The musee Fabre is even nicer than before since the work they have done The themes change regularly and the other floors show amazing paintings that lived through centuries without aging a bit A must go in Montpellier.

We visited the museum during our stay in Montpellier. The location is convenient and the building is beautiful. It is not a large museum. Nice to visit.

We stopped in to see the permanent collection. Well arranged with some very interesting pieces. I liked the flow of the museum too. Easy to navigate. I found it hard to believe that the front staff spoke no English. Really. The woman we dealt with didn't even try. She seemed rather annoyed by my rudimentary French. Also all of the... More

Very impressive, with some really amazing works. My boyfriend and I just got the permanent collection ticket which was 6 Euros and there was almost too much to see before we had to tear ourselves away for lunch! Beautiful area too, great for an afternoon stroll.

When we travel, my wife and I enjoy exploring the city and local food and wine. So museums are not our main focus. Still, I enjoyed this museum and its collection, and I could have easily spent a half day here. Beautiful building itself, across from park

Most impressive. We visited during a short trip to Montpellier and very glad we did. An interesting collection of art spanning a number of centuries. Some very interesting pieces with some excellent examples of the impressionists. Look out for Monet, Manet and Renoir in particular. You need to allow a couple of hours at least and invest a euro in... More
