The highlight was the 14 Courbet in one room including the famous Bonjour Monsieur Corbet and his famous self portrait smoking his pipe as a young man. The Berthe Morrisat of a young woman sitting in the garden. The Manet portrait of Proust is much larger than you imagine. The Bazille collection is an interesting local artist with some beautiful...

This museum is centrally located and has a nice permanent collection, but we came mostly to see the exhibit on Naples, which was fantastic. It is worth the few euros to get the audio tour.

Was not expecting much so was very surprised how wonderful this museum is. Get the audio guide it was fantastic and give yourself time to eat at the restaurant which is amazing. I learned so much at this museum it was a highlight of my trip.

If you have ever been a student of art this musee offers you collections both fixed and special exhibitions to rival the best. This months exposition was L'Age d'Or de la Peinture à Naples. Superb. The staff were friendly, helpful and courteous.

A lovely space but the pieces felt try dated and there was no explanations in English for us to understand what we were seeing. Students are free which was cool.

I was surprised by the quality of the museumcollection. Fabre (and Montepellier) should be visited if you are interested in Bazille of course, who was from Montpellier, but the collection is of a much wider interest. The museum is very welll kept.

Pleasant not overly large art gallery, special exhibition added to interest. About an hour and half will suffice.

This beautiful museum with a range of art provided a nice respite on a hot day. There was a special exhibit on Naples that was a real plus. The museum was quiet and there were many places to sit and view paintings in detail. The gift shop had some nice things.

They also have a wonderful museum shop with lots of interesting books and souvenirs. The museum is housed in a very old and historic building but it has been completely restored inside so it appears quite modern - and it is air-conditioned - once inside. Buy a ticket that included the visit of the historic home one block away.
