This is more of an art gallery than a museum but is worth a visit. Paintings, ceramics, roman remains etc. Interesting and worth the €3 entry fee.

It was a small museum with wonderful art from the local area. Great way to start the morning before the beach!

Lovely building with museum in basement with other floors an art gallery. Given that it was only the museum that I was interested in, I was quite disappointed. A leaflet in English didn't really explain the exhibits, and there was no other information in English available. Very poor really, or maybe they don't expect us Brits to be interested in... More

Its placed in the lovely castle area and nice to pop in and have a look round. The curator was very friendly and spoke good English. Some roman artefacts but really an art gallery.

The museum is worth going to, although it is quite small, the admission isn't much. We liked the roman floor most, the rest was pretty much just paintings. There are quite a lot of steps but you can leave buggys by admission desk.

Most of the museum's pieces are quite pedestrian, but the archeological display is interesting and the Roman mosaic excellent. Best of all, the Chagall "Celestial violinist" that almost floats away with joy

It is worth visiting this little museum and we were impressed for the 3euro admission price. Luckally we had read the reviews on here before we went so were prepaired for it to be more like an art gallery. I would only call the basement floor a museum, with finds from the roman villa. The other 3 floors are all... More

So understated is this gem of a museum that it takes a while to realise the significance of the art on display. But more than that it is a poignant glimpse of a fleeting glorious and happy moment in the lives of several artists who would soon be forced to escape from the bulldozing facism of 1930's Europe. There are... More

Good value with a modest emtrance fee and interesting enough but the curator (a kindly gent who spoke excellent English) made it special or us with his detailed knowledge of the town and local history, ancient and modern. Learn how to ruin a lovely historic town with eysore modern flats and hotels and then partly resuscitate it by restoring the... More

this museum has been greatly updated and its contents enhanced since my last visit. it is wel worth a visit en if just to examine the treasures from the old roman villa, at E3, the entry fee is nominal.
