When was the last time You have been in art gallery? Have you ever had a closer look at the original painting dated in the middle of 17-th century? For me both answers were embarrassingly adverse :-( That's why I'm happy I have visited Musee Fabre. I'ts not the Louvre or Ermittage, even total art ignoramus like me can see... More

Something completely unexpected. I was own my own visiting that wonderful and fine collection of art, and that's a really strange experience these days. Difficult to spend less than 2 hours there. The staff is helpful and friendly. Not to miss the collection of modernist art. You can discover a few unknown painters.

Be prepared to spend several hours in the museum, there's soo much to see. When we bought our ticket, we were frienldy informed that we could leave the museum for coffee or for lunch, and come back to see the rest, a very good idea indeed!

I was in Montpellier visiting a friend but, as she had to go to class all morning, I went to the Musee Fabre on my own. Probably one of the best experiences I've had in an art gallery (I don't know too much about art). It is really huge, nicely laid out, the paintings were interesting and the audioguide was... More

This is a fairly large fine Arts Museum located in what appears to be an old palace. The good news is that the place is modern inside ,the works well displayed and the staff pleasant. Unfortunately the quality of the art works displayed is not on par with their setting. There is a large quantity of paintings and a few... More

The museum has lots to see, so don't try to do everything in one day. Better to seek out the specific things you want to see and spend time there. We made the mistake of trying to see everything and found it too difficult and tiring!

On the oil painting side, has a bit of everything, with some focus on local artists who gained fame, such as Cabanel and Bazille. Also a few sculptures. After the Languedoc sections, the most interesting rooms might be those devoted to Delacroix, and the Impressionists. While there are no superstar works, this is a good collection. The temporary exhibit is... More

Really worth a trip to this Museum - very informative and enjoyable visit. Airy rooms, huge windows. Particularly liked the sculpture gallery.
