Worth the entrance fee to get out of the hot afternoon sun and view some incredible works of art. Plenty of gorgeous little bars and cafes and shops in the same street too.

If you like art then this is the place for you. Otherwise it's worth the trip inside just to see the grand painting of the emperor of Rom Napoleon in all his glory. No matter if you like art or not, that painting is truly...More

Not very interesting unless you like ancient art. No known artists (to me at least). Cardinal Fesch was a relative of Napoleon apparently and wanted to spread art in Corsica.

The only reason this didn't get rated 1 is because it was marginally better than the Maison Napoleon. Lots of 3rd tier portraits, still lifes and devotional scenes. This museum helps you understand that there's something to being a great master. None are here. Agree...More

Not worth the ticket, unless you like paintings. There is nothing else to see in this museum. Fesch was sponsoring lots of local painters who were still practicing arts. Other issue that everything is displayed only in French.

Cardinal Fesch had a fetish of sorts in art collecting: this museum represents part of the 16,000 pieces of art amassed on an apparently not too austere salary. Lots and lots of Virgin Mary pieces, as well as (Saint) Napoleon Bonaparte reproduced in multiple media:...More

I am sorry that I can not be sure of the accessibility. You would need to address this question directly to the museum.
