8euros to get inn, closed between 12.30 till 1.30. A really quirky museum, some rooms very crowded with exhibits which are poorly explained even in French. There, however, some gems to be found. Covering a wide variety of art from medieval to modern it is obviously a private collection, a little disorganised and esoteric to say the least.

We were quite impressed by the holdings of this museum near the river. It is housed in in a 1555 mansion and displays many artifacts in room settings. While many of the displayed items emphasize Renaissance culture, the more impressive (to us) holdings were their 19th century paintings. The displays are well arranged and the course through the museum is... More

The Renaissance Hôtel d'Assézat offers one of the most important private collections of art in Europe, assembled by George Bemberg. A beautifully presented collection of wonderful pictures by artists of various periods, between the Middle Ages and the 20th century, including Bonnard, Canaletto, Tiepolo, Veronese, Gauguin and Picasso. For those for whom even a visit to a gallery requires food,... More

Visited the Fondation Bemberg based on TripAdvisor reviews. I was not disappointed. We received a lot of background info on how the museum began, the collection and the man behind it from the front desk. I love small museums and this was a treat. Amazing private collection of artwork in many mediums.

This is a fine building, housing a very interesting and mixed collection of fine art. I enjoyed the modernist paintings particularly.

Greatly enjoyed the varied collection of the Fondation Bamberg. Well worth the admission fee. It felt like I was walking through the home of an art collector rather than a museum. (The building housing the collection is impressive in itself.). The first room, the Venice room, is a perfect introduction to the collection with several Canalettos. The portrait room, my... More

Beautiful mansion houses housing an amazing private collection with works by many of the most famous French artists (Bonnard, Toulouse-Lautrec, Degas, Manet, Sisley, etc.). The gallery is set out in a series of rooms, each depicting a particular period of French history, with furniture and objet d'arts to match. Highly recommended.

The Fondation Bemberg is a must art collection, housed within a Renaissance villa. The impressionist paintings are stunning.

This is a great small museum, little visited I suspect. Large collection of Bonnard's. Lovely old building.

The building itself is beautiful on the outside and really draws your eye. Once Inside you are met with a great exhibition with losts of paintings and sculptures but the best part is definitely the floor of impressionim paintings (although seeing Picasso's doodles was certainly a treat). There are some truly gorgeous pieces with a fantastic selection of works by... More
