Not the biggest museum, but fascinating.

Situated in an interesting building, the stone works within are amazing. Such detail! Well worth a look around, and no charge if you have bought the City Pass

Stumbled across this gallery on a wet afternoon as we went in search of the cathedral. Had never heard of David d'Angers, but the statues and drawings that he'd created were fascinating and all beautifully exhibited in the ruined church that had been cleverly restored and put to good use.

David d'Angers was an artist with a vision, a heart, and an intellect. The pieces here will tantalize and excite the historian and humanist in you. Definitely a gem. Would love to return again. Tip: Be prepared to leave your backpack/purse/etc. at the front desk. No flash photography.

The building that houses the galerie is a piece of art itself. An old abbey which had it`s roof fall in was reconstructed with a soaring glass ceiling. The light and high ceilings add to the presentation of the statues and other carvings. The city has an enormous amount of examples of molds for statues that are found throughout the... More

I stumbled onto this building while walking the town on the last day of my trip. It was a wonderful discovery and one of my favorite places to visit in the town. Had I found it earlier in my month-long stay, I would have revisited often. A beautiful church which had its roof replaced by iron and glass. It lets... More

Definitely a must see if you are amateur of French culture and old stones. The gallery is located near the city center, and the castle (Chateau du Roi Rene). Not only has the Gallery beautiful sculpture but the building itself is Art ( the roof has been renovated by glasses which gives an interesting light on the sculptures). If you... More

A must see in Angers. A collection of scruptures of local artist and others. In a very nice building with excellent lighting and quiteness. Choose the right timing, early in the morning. Efficient and friendly staff.

While most people visit Angers to tour the city's imposing medieval fortress containing magnificent 14th century tapestries that depict the Apocalypse, Angers has several other notable sites worth visiting. One of those, located only a few blocks from the famous fortress, that I happened upon is the Galerie David d'Angers, a museum of works by one of Angers' most illustrious... More
