Having been 'Bastided' out by loads of local fab towns, we made a trip to the more earthy city life of Agen. Other reviewers have well made the point that everything is not quite A list but actually its all charming with Roman treasures, paintings,...More

On a day trip we spent several enjoyable hours meandering the rooms and spaces. A collection of 'b list' impressionists is really nice. The walk through Agen from the Gare is also lovely.

Great place to spend an hour. Eclectic mix from pre-Roman to modern. Look out for the Roman alabaster angel in the cabinet by the reception desk - it's magical.

The museum itself is situated in a lovely building with lots of beautiful features. The collection itself is quite small but there is quite an interesting variety of items on display. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

The Agen Museum is set in beautiful historical buildings. It is rather wide ranging for a small museum. Nice sections of antiquities and porcelains. Everything is well displayed and labeled. Includes a number of paintings from Goya and decorative arts such as wardrobes and clocks....More

This museum may contain works by some famous names but they are so poorly presented, it makes the experience average at best. We made a special two hour trip to Agen to see this and were disappointed. I suspect had we been staying nearer, it...More
