Regional crafts and all kind of historical samples (often religious). Very interesting to visualize the mixed influences of cultures where Lille is at the center. Many models of the cities, how they looked at the Middle Age. An at least two hour tour among this interesting gathering of very different testimonies is necessary: A short time investment to understand centuries... More

The Palais des Beaux Arts collection is second only to the Louvre in France. It is unbelievable how close you can get to numerous pieces by famous artists. A must see.

This a magnificent building which was completely renovated a few years ago. It used to have a splendid terrace restaurant which sadly is no more - just a rather dismal little snack area. Admittedly it's August so notice happens bit I've been here twice before in August and the place has been much busier. The audio equipment I was given... More

I visited this art museum while in Lille, France on vacation. Fine art museum - many interesting pieces and well displayed. Really worth a visit! Building itself was interesting, but would be a challenge for anyone with mobility issues. I visited while there was VERY strange exhibits of Donald Duck (yes, Donald Duck) interspersed with the fine art. Very weird,... More

This museum contained a large and varied collection of artwork and was worth spending half a day there. One can have lunch in the informal cafeteria as well. Glad we saw it.

Our French speaker got us our tickets and after a bag search, we were directed to the media desk to pick up our head phones for the tour, unfortunately, only two of us had a drivers licence or a passport, so they would only allow two headsets out. The people in front of us were having the same trouble as... More

It can honestly be named as one of the highlights of the holiday. I could never have imagined to have seen work from the greats such as Renoir, Picasso, Van Gough and Monet as well as several others in such a surprisingly location. The building enough will blow you away with its high ceilings and magnificent architecture. Despite the vast... More

A great way to spend some quality time with some quality Art! LOVED the Monet works and was able to sit in peace and just look...not an overcrowded museum, very stylish...make sure you bring some picture I.D. For the audio description equipment.
