Got to visit this museum last summer. The place is truly beautiful. It's an old nobleman's mansion and it was a nice cour d'honneur with a monument to the owner. The rooms were aircondinioned and this was the very important aspect as outside it was...More

The museum has some interesting artwork, excellent paintings, and a nice layout. The lighting on the other had is horrible, spot lights are directed to oil paintings which makes,them reflect like a mirror. So you really can't appreciate the paintings. It's such a shame.

Drove here specifically to visit the collection and wish I had not wasted half a day. Traffic a real nightmare into the town, although close proximity metered parking very reasonable, just follow your sat-nav. Very disappointing collection, badly lit and the usual single language information...More

Billed as an important museum, I have to say we were all disappointed. There were some interesting paintings, especially those on the lower ground level which had various paintings of Ajaccio in the 19th and early 20th century. But I didn't understand the curating of...More

Although not unfriendly the staff were all very tense and constantly followed you around a few steps behind as you went through the gallery. There were a few nice pieces of corsican art in the basement but much of the rest was extremely dark and...More

This is a nice museum, not too big and nicely laid out. The collection is good, but not great. As there are not a lot of cultural things to do in Ajaccio, this ranks high on the list.

Bit overrated museum - boasts largest French collection of Italian Renaissance/Baroque masters outside Louvre, but that is overreach - example, only one Boticelli, no Titian, etc. most are second rated artists. One credit: shows evolution of late medieval to early renaissance quite well with appearance...More
