Good way to spend the afternoon on a cold January day. A shame a few keys pieces were missing, on loan to other galleries.

The museum had been recommended by our local host and we were not disappointed. The collection is in a wonderful setting and contains art from the medieval to the impressionists together with some lovely furniture and other objects. Very well presented and of a manageable size. Mr Bemberg obviously had impeccable taste.

The exhibition showing when I visited wasn't of interest to me, however it is worth stopping by just to walk into the beautiful courtyard and take a few pictures. There is also a cafe here - great shady, cool spot for when the city gets too hot.

One of the most beautiful private collections on display in all of South of France. From 15th century north European religious iconography to 18th century French romantic landscapes and post revolutionary art. You have as well one of the rarest portraits of Charles IX with his tiny hands ;) The most beautifu pieces in my opinion are in the 2nd... More

The Fondation Bemberg is not to be missed for any art lover. The setting is simply beautiful and the first level of the museum features many amazing pieces of decorative arts, including some stunning furniture and ceramics. The paintings are spectacular and feature many periods ranging from Renaissance to 20th century. Roaming the halls of the Hotel d'Assezat to view... More

Great collection in a fascinating building - especially the impressionists and post-impressionists. My personal highlight was Pissarro's painting of Dulwich College where I was once a pupil, as I didn't know the original was here. Only two negatives (which prevent this being a 5 star review): the ban on taking photographs, and the cafe - where no-one seemed interested or... More
