A very nice art gallery, full of mostly french paintings, sculptures and furniture, including works by famous artists such as Monet, Matisse, Bonnard, Delacroix and Corot. The collection of Corots is the second largest after that in the Louvre.

While not a large art museum it is inexpensive and contains some wonderful exhibits. I found it relaxing, quiet, and beautiful. Clearly building for the future but great value for money given the exhibits displayed.

I was looking forward to visiting this museum as I heard they had a good collection of deco furniture. Unfortunately it was not the biggest collection (maybe enough for one house). The pictures on the first floor were good but, again, not as many as expected. For a 7€ entrance fee, not the best value for money.

Some interesting works but there could be more and the link with the various champagne benefactors such as Mme Pommery, could have been made. An excellent collection of Corot works.

Our kids (teenagers) loved this little art gallery - and they were free to get in as they are under 18. I thought it was great value for money and recommend going. The staff were so helpful and one man showed my kids how to find something hidden in one of the paintings.The only negative thing I would say about... More

It will be better one day but at the moment it is a dull museum and the quality of the works are nothing to write home about. It only cost 4€ to get in and that includes the Foujita Chapel a kilometer away (which is excellent). If you visit the Foujita Chapel then you will enjoy a couple of very... More

Very little information in English. It had two beautiful Monet paintings, The layout was a bit odd in that you get to the end of the exhibits and have to just turn around and retrace your steps.

The cost to enter is very reasonable, the museum small but interesting. Although there are no signs, photos are not allowed.

It is a museum for the painting lovers! There are paints coming from the XV - XXI ages, mainly from the regional painters. In June-August 2014, the museum was closed for repairs and temporary expositions organization.

The museum is being packed up and most of the art work has been moved to the Pompidou Centre temporarily as the city is building a new modern building to house their comprehensive collection. Currently charging 3 euro entry but there is so little to see. The new building is scheduled to open in 2018.
