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.

We visited the Museum during a recent visit to Montpellier. We were lucky enough to catch an exhibition of the Golden Age of Naples which was really wonderful. The permanent works were excellent too and the building is beautiful. The works by local painter Bazille were excellent. Definitely worth a visit.

A fantastic building. A broad collection of Flemish Masters with the biggest names, a wide range of 19 th century painters, sculptures and much more. But the specially build section showing Pierre Soulages is my preferé. I became a member and go and sit in the room looking to the monochrome black paintings, discoverring new things each time - A...

For me, the highlight of this museum was the extensive collection of Dutch paintings. There is also a large collection of French paintings of the academic sort, which do not appeal to me as much, but that's a matter of taste. The museum is spacious and well-lit.

This museum is a carefully curated and well-designed gem in Montpellier. The lack of crowds and galleries filled with natural light create a feeling of calm spaciousness. It's a lovely way to while away a few hours.

My husband and I were very pleased to have found this museum because the collections are wonderful. There is such a variety of artwork, including some of the world’s great masters. Plus there are works by François- Xavier Fabre, the Montpellier painter who founded the museum in 1825. I was surprised to learn that it is one of the largest... More

A large collection of interesting artwork! I liked the last part of the permanent collection the best as it contained more modern art!
