As I strolled from room to room the paintings seemed to be getting better and better. Then I entered the court yard, looked right, and saw local boy - Joseph-Desire Court's 1865 Salon entry, "The Martyrdom of Saint Agnes in the Roman Forum." I nearly fell over. What a work! How long did it take to paint this? Such detail.... More

Very nice museum representing a wide range of artistic styles and time periods. If you have a particular style of art you're interested in, though, make sure you follow the map carefully so you get to see what you want to see. We started at the wrong end of the museum, so by the time we got to the Impressionist... More

We only had an hour for this before our train left, and I wish we'd had more time. There are quite a number of good pieces here (not limited to the room full of Sisleys of the title), including some Roman work and Medieval art.

This museum has a very nice collection of art. It is the second largest collection of impressionist paintings in the world, second to the Louvre. There are a handful of paintings by Monet and a few by Renoir. Photography is allowed, but no flash. I think we spent about 2 hours here. I would not hesitate to make another visit.... More

Very good collection, not crowded like most well known galleries. Although there was not a large amount of contemporary art, there was an even amount from all periods. Reasonable entrance fee for a very nice little gallery.

A wonderful collection of art, well displayed to give an overview of each artist/genre without becoming overpowering. The still life of mushrooms and insects is a must see!

Wonderful small, uncrowded museum with several very good Monets, including the cathedral façade, and a nice impressionist section. Should not be missed.

Spent an afternoon here. Well worth the visit. A wide variety of art spanning the centuries. The Impressionist art is excellent featuring such artists as Sisley, Monet and Manet. There is a lovely courtyard café and an excellent bookshop.

Lovely museum. We enjoyed the Cathedrals exhibit. The only downside to this was the first floor was closed for half the day when we went. Make sure to check the times before you go!
