We saw very little of the permanent collection. We spent most of our time in the special exhibit of paintings of native son Frédéric Bazille, which was superb. From what I saw of the rest of the museum, it definitely merits a visit.

We toured the museum and a Brazille exhibit. Outstanding collection of Brazille paintings and sketches as well as paintings by Monet, Manet, Renoir and others. A mind-blower to see so many master impressionists in the museum. Their other collected items are also excellent.

We went to an excellent exhibit of the Impressionist Frederic Bazille, an equal contemporary of Monet, Renoir & Manet. There were many painting from all over the world, many very large one, particularly Monet. The exhibit put side by side works from many painters that were directly comparable.

We love the Fabre Museum and went especially to see the Frédéric Bazille exhibition. It runs until 16th October every day except Mondays from 10.00 - 19.00. The entry price is €10 and audio guides are available for €3 We had never heard Frédéric Bazille. He was born in Montpellier, the son of a prominent local family. They wanted him... More

We went to the gallery specifically to see this exhibition, but the overall experience is superb. The exhibition itself if excellent, with great pieces intelligently curated. The museum itself is worth a visit and has been refurbished to a good standard. Highly recommended.

Till October there is a temporary exhibition about the impressionist painter, Bazille, who was born in Motpellier. Such amazing paintings were collected not only from his life but also his companions (Monet, Sisly, Delacroix) that cannot be seen at the same place. The price of the ticket is really nothing comparing the collection. What is more your ticket includes a... More

Beautifully modernised major art gallery. We found the main collection a little bit of a struggle - but the seemingly endless pre 19th century religious & mythological scenes etc gave way to some stunning Courbets and above all we enjoyed the more manageable Bazille exhibition (till October), tracing the life of this local painter who was on the verge of...

We planed to go to see the special exhibition and the cashier suggested that as it was Sunday, the main exhibition was free. Perhaps we might want to see that one first.... Two/three hours later we adjourned for a glass of wine... Bought the book to read more about the gallery when back at home and to look at the... More
