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.

The permanent collection is excellent and the temporary exhibitions are a cut above the ordinary. Ceret is a small town and the Musee is very accessible.

Despite being only partially open (and therefore free entrance!) we thoroughly enjoyed the exhibits and discovered some new names, particularly the varied works of Pinkus Krémègne which span his life until the age of 90, and also Chaïm Soutine. If all these aren't enough for you, I suggest you go to the tourist office and pick up a leaflet called... More

Only part of the museum is open as they prepare for a Goya exhibition. Due to the limitation, entry is currently free. You can still see some Picasso's and other worthwhile works but you may wish to wait for it all to reopen. We had been before so weren't too disappointed.
