Somehow we left with the feeling that this museum (a rather unique but uninvitingly dark building) houses the „left-overs“ – that is what the artist or his Gallerists couldn’t sell and finally “donated” to the museum. The early works (mostly without any title as to...More

Quite an achievement to show the greatest part of Soulages ' work. Excellent lighting. Another temporary exhibition of Le Corbusier's early works was a bonus.

Whether or not you're a big fan of contemporary art doesn't really matter in this case because the venue itself is absolutely worth a visit. The architecture blends incredibly within the rest of the city and brings a touch of both modernism and authenticity. The...More

We were attracted by the exposition of Calder and we were rewarded: interesting expo. Soulages is of local importance, mostly the same works.

Loved this museum with its subdued lighting to showcase the expressionist paintings of Soulages. The building itself is an exciting destination for lovers of modern architecture with clean lines. Great restaurant too. A ticket here also covers the Musée Fenaille.
