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

The temporary exhibits that we've seen over 15+ years are always worthwhile and the permanent exhibit is worth a revisit every couple of years.

The Musée Fabre has undergone a facelift to show off its impressive collection , dating from the 17th to the 20th century. Housed in a series of galleries within a 17th C. Jesuit College, an 18th C. Hotel de Ville and 19th C. extensions, the building itself is quite impressive and the renovations are creative whilst respecting the original architecture.... More

I've been to Montpellier often, but never visited the art gallery (which is what it is) despite it being very conveniently situated on the edge of the Old Town and a few minutes from the principal shopping area. Old outside but new inside, the museum has been skilfully and lovingly set out. The 6 euros entrance ticket is a steal.... More
