Several floors of art, mostly religious, collected by Cardinal Fesch (a relative of the Bonaparte family). The building itself is also worth inspecting. There are some interesting explanations (only in French, unfortunately) about the style of hanging the artworks. My favourite part was the museum section that celebrates/perpetuates the cult of Napoléon – fascinating!

It’s free and it has some beautiful artwork but I would not describe it as a museum. One floor was closed so maybe that’s the museum bit?

Being English, I don’t know as much about the Bonaparte family (I could tell them a lot about the Duke of Wellington!) but I learned a fair bit on our visit. Be warned, the signage and info is ONLY in French. There was a notice (in French of course) stating there was a technical problem; Oh Oh... I thought. But I read on... “therefore today there is NO CHARGE for admission. Result! TBH, it’s well worth the 8 Euros anyway but as a freebie, it was excellent. The rooms are dark, cool and calm. Take your time and enjoy the details.

We had not planned to visit this museum. However, when the weather made it tricky to board a boat to Bonifacio we decided to visit it. I was so glad we did! Amazing paintings! What a collection! The marble sculptures of the heads of many of Napoleon relatives are also fascinating! The staff was also very pleasant. We were there quite early, a morning in May, and at first, we had the museum almost to ourselves. I really recommend this beaux arts museum.

This museum allegedly has the largest collection of Art outside the Louvre and is well worth a visit. It was on our "to do" list before we went.One reviewer stated it was a good place to while away an hour.We spent two and a half hours there and could have stayed longer. There was an additional exhibition of items from the Bonaparte family which was a nice suprise. Signs indicated " No photography" but luckily managed to get a book on Musee Fresch off good old ebay. Highly recommend.
