Be sure to set aside some time to explore this museum. The permanent collection is impressive with several unexpected stunners and a reappearing benefactor whose periodic portraits seemed like a charming inside joke among friends. The Brazille exhibit blew me away. It was brilliantly curated. I visited it before meeting my daughter at the end of her school day, and... More

In his short life, Frédéric Bazille was a great impressionist artist, and perhaps more importantly, influenced other French artists from that period with his wit, his commitment to craft and skill, and with his family's money that enable him to buy various works. I can't pretend to know much about art, but I know a whole lot more after spending... More

The people of Montpellier have invested heavily in one of their main assets... A beautiful collection of paintings, obviously with a heavy accent on painters from the Languedoc - Rousillon region including the artist for whom the museum is named Francois Xavier Fabre 1766-1837 and the early impressionist artist Frederic Bazille. There is an impressive exhibition of Bazille and his... More

The building is modern on the inside so a real treat to see. The works in the main gallery are exceptionally well laid out. If you are someone that doesn't know a lot about art, this is a good place to start. The works are laid out in chronological order so as you tour you get a sense of how... More

Went here with a friend when we didn't have so much other things to do and it was nice. We spent some hours walking around looking at all the different paintings and the hotel that's just around the corner from the museum. I'm not that interested in art I just enjoy watching beautiful paintings and that might be why I... More

A 'must' visit when in Montpellier. Some interesting pictures in the permanent collection. This year's exhibition is of paintings by local born, little known artist, Frédéric Bazille. Friend of Monet, Bazille could have been an even greater artist if he had lived longer, but he was sadly killed in the Prussian wars. The rooms are harshly air-conditioned, you might want... More

This museum is really well laid out and the exhibition on Bazille and some of his contemporaries is fabulous. So many amazing paintings. I took the translated information which was very informative. This was definitely a wonderful experience if you like looking at art. The museum was lovely and cool also as it was very hot outside.

A very nice museum who regularly offers some interesting exhibit. Located by a pretty "promenade" right in the center of town. The permanent collection has some nice piece - classic and modern.
