This is a lovely quiet cool building. Very low-fuss, informal welcome. No grumpy signs. The highlight has to be the Roman mosaic floor, and it is probably worth the price of entrance just to see that. But we spent another 2 hours wandering and looking....More

Compact but intense gallery of Italian and French painting. Superb restored Roman mosaic floor rescued from somewhere in Nimes. Was free on Sunday.

Just the right size not to be overwhelming. We spent an hour and a half veiwing the museum. Even my husband found it interesting! Worth a visit.

It's a small museum with a huge floor mosaic being its definite highlight. Of painters of any significance they have Rubens and Jan Miense Molenaer and Paul Delaroche's canvas. The museum is free
