Great museum

Very extensive museum with a beautifully curated temporary exhibition, well worth the visit. Apparently the restaurant outside is good too.

Our friends suggested the Musee may be worth a visit. We were lucky to find a major exhibition of Bazille, a key French Impressionist who was from Montpellier. The exhibition was chronological in explaining his life and the development of his style, and included works by Monet, Renoir, Manet and Cezanne to name a few. We found it fascinating and... More

Talented artists, but none that you have ever heard of. OK, there might be one or two works by major artists in here, but essentially these are works that got a bronze medal or honorable mention, not the gold or silver.

It is a human size museum but the seasonal exhibits are always high ranking. There are thematic visits some at night that are recommandable

If you are an art lover and are visiting Montpellier this is a must, both for the building and the artworks. There are some well known gems by Courbet, a few works by Ingres and Delacroix, as well as paintings by contemporary artists from the region who have made an international name for themselves such as Viallat and Soulages.

Well maintained. Well lit museum. Not too big perfect for a 2 hours or 3 hr visit. Didnt get time to see the café restaurant but their activities for kids were mesmerising. They had a booklet to visit the museum, make their notes drawings etc. Must see do not miss the beautiful paintings

The kids had had enough of art for one holiday so we had time to explore the whole museum. The (friendly) woman who sold us our ticket pointed out that we could leave after viewing half the collection and maybe come back later. We could have taken this as a sign. The museum is unassuming from the outside but inside... More
