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

We were very pleasantly surprised and extremely impressed with Bemberg's private collection of paintings. The first floor of the Hotel Assézat with 7 rooms is dedicated to his Renaissance European collection with some Asian pieces. The second floor with his collection of impressionist/post impressionist works made this visit very worthwhile for us. I will definitely come back to visit this... More

This was an interesting stop with some interesting art but if you've been to the D'Orsay museum in Paris, this is less impressive repeat.

The museum is situated in a very beautiful renaissance building. The rooms are thematic and tasteful painted and arranged. This is not a big collection but it contains several master pieces. There is a pleasant semicovered café in the court yard protected from noise, winds and hot sun.

Visited this museum on a cold winter's day and had the place to myself. Very charming with many different rooms, themes, and pieces. Definitely worth a visit.
