We visit this museum often and their special exhibitions are really well curated. Thete is such depth of artistic innovation in this region and the museum does really well to demonstrate the connectivity of the artists. until the end of October it is Maillol with Frère and Pons - delightful!

This museum shows off the area artists that use to live in Ceret. Do not miss it when you are in this town.

We were really interested in seeing this museum and travelled quite a long way to visit the town and the exhibition. There was a special exhibition of several well known painters and sculptors and it was interesting to see their work exhibited. Enjoy asked at reception for an English translation and we're firmly told 'non'! however, there were info sheets... More

The museum has a permanent collection of paintings related to Ceret. You'll see works from Picasso (a very big section of the museum), Chagall, Braque, Gris, etc.

This is a great little Gallery. There is plenty of viewing space, I felt unhurried. The works are displayed well.

Fearing this would be too small for our cultural friends, we were most impressed with the collection offered. Insight into Henri Frere also whose work I loved. Go to the end first and see the film as it puts a lot into context!

Nothing spectacular, but was an impressive modern art museum for a small rural french town. Has some works from impressive artists, but none of their more impressive or important works. Still, nonetheless impressive for an art museum in a small town.

An important permanent collection containing Picassos, Matisse, Manolo, Chagall and many others. Lots of the cubists stayed in Ceret which has a great artistic community. Ceret is an important museum and welcomes internationally important artists such as Plensa, Maillol, Duffy and many more. Well worth a visit at 8€.

This visit was following a trip to Collioure where several of the painters had been based. Lots to look at include quite a lot of works by Picasso, Frere and Matisse.

Having been to many galleries and museums around the world I have to say this was awful. The staff were rude and dismissive and incredibly unhelpful. The English guide is a piece of A3 paper, one side! What information is available is French, however most pieces have zero information. Avoid.
