Very interesting museum with prehistoric and roman items with remnants of old city walls on display ,Some beautiful paintings and sculptures are also on display. While we were visiting other exhibits on another floor were being prepared. Give yourself plenty of time if interested in these .Entrance was only €2 .

This museum which is next door to the St. Jean Bapistry has a large range of prehistoric and Gallo-Roman artifacts from the area as well as a wide range of paintings and sculpture. Definitely worth a walk through.

I visited this museum specifically to see one painting in particular and ended up spending over three hours browsing the collections. The layout of the museum is confusing, and so I went backwards, chronologically, from modern to ancient. This actually worked for me, though.

Very interesting museum on at least two basement floors (probably three), also large reception area and an upstairs too. Plenty to see so make sure you leave yourself enough time to visit the art galleries as well as all the artifacts hidden deep in the bowels of the museum!

This is a decent museum and has some excellent exhibits (although the Camille Claudel piece which i really wanted to see was on loan to Dresden!) - however the layout was a bit confusing and especially the paintings seemed to be grouped together in a rather muddled way. The cabinet of curiousities was interesting and would have been even more... More

Extremely pleased with this museum. The archaelogy exhibit was fantastic and worth the visit. Enjoyed the Rodin and other sculptures and paintings throughout the museum. The cabinet of curiosities completed the tour in a fascinating way. Recommended as an end of the day, relaxing tour.

Didn't go in as they are in the middle of renovation and the areas I was interested in - ancient history and medieval are closed. Wish I had known before I did the walk there!
