A great place to visit. We went with our children ages 8 and 15 and they really enjoyed looking at all the art.

Well laid out and not too large museum. Loads of work by the master, including lots of painting on ceramics. Major display of works about bull fighting.

We were amazed to find an extensive Picasso exhibit regarding regarding his love of bullfighting including photos, sketches, paintings and ceramics. This may be a travelling exhibit. Also there is a famous dove drawing by Picasso apparently done for the museum. In the small collection were a couple Chagalls and a Gris (Le Journal) as well.

We were looking forward to seeing a collection of work from the various artistic luminaries who have made Ceret their home, but were surprised to find that every single piece on display was to do with bullfighting. That said, it was an impressive collection, with some very remarkable pieces.

This museum showcases several artists who, mostly unknown outside France, made an obviously seminal contribution to the evolution of Cubism as a modern art style. This alone makes a visit to the museum worthwhile. In addition, there was a retrospective exhibition of art representing bullfighting as a social and cultural tradition that was important in Catalonia of which this area... More

I enjoyed the permanent collection of famous artists like Picasso in this small Museum. However at the time of our visit in July 2014 there was a temporary exhibition with the theme Bull fighting. This is a very delicate subject in this day and age. I do not think that especially children should see the killing and torture of any... More

Both the permanent collection and the current bull-fighting exhibition are excellent. Much of the art focuses on the beautiful village of Ceret itself and features some wonderful artists such as Picasso, Miro, Chagall, Matisse and Masson. You can have a lovely stroll around Ceret itself.
