High quality small museum

Well worth the time. Numerous smaller Rodin sculptures, an interesting collection of impressionists, and a very good exhibit of watercolors. The museum deserves a well spent hour.

A nice way to spend a couple of hours, spread over 3 floors. Really enjoyed this wee museum. First floor is mainly new exhibitions, second floor lots of impressionist paintings and the third floor is where the Rodins are.

Marvellous presence of Rodin sculptures, it is the second per importance and numbers of pieces in France after the Musee Rodin in Paris. Need to spend some time to appreciate those sculptures.

Staying next door at the Hotel Notre Dame des Eaux, the staff suggested we visit the Musee Faure, which has the 2nd largest collection of Rodin's sculptures in France. The museum is more than this though and over 3 floors has a number of beautiful artworks by some of the worlds greatest artists...Degas, Pissaro, Cezanne etc. Certainly enjoyed the visit.

This small museum includes for the second most important collection of sculptures from RODIN. You have to visit it absolutely if you pass by the Region Savoie.
