About
Since it first opened back in 1867, the Musée de Picardie has been considered one of the finest French museums outside of Paris. Inspired by Napoleon III’s Louvre design, it is a museum of fine arts and archaeology bringing together rich collections of sculptures, artefacts and paintings, taking visitors on a journey across the world and through time from the Palaeolithic Era to the present day. It has undergone a huge renovation between 2015 and 2020. The reopening took place March 1st 2020.

The building is quite big but you can visit the museum in about one hour.
There are several things to see and the visit is interesting (there are also very nice paintings).

While it isn't a huge museum, it does have some very good exhibits. It is more than just an art gallery, and they way they set out the rooms also works quite well.

An amazing building currently undergoing restoration so a visit is not really worthwhile just yet. Most of the collection is not available to view. The paintings on exhibit are stunning and huge! The room overwhelms!

Currently (May 2017) parts are closed for renovation, so limited access. A good display of art well laid out.

This seemingly tiny building is overfilled by interesting items to be seen. The paintings, statues, and foreign exhibitions will leave you speechless.

It was the first museum in which I saw a real mummy in its coffin. After that I have seen such only in the museum of Vatican. Neither the Louvre or Prada museums had such. My hopes stays for the museums of London and New York :)

P.S. Don't forget to check the underground level of the museum.

When we arrived at the museum, the staff clearly explained that during refurbishment only a small portion of the collection was visible. The salon has been hung with extra paintings to give a sense of the collection; unfortunately, the lighting is not suitable, and it is very hard to see most of them without shine.

I would be interested in going back after the refurbishment to see the full collection.

Amiens which was almost destroyed in World War 1 is a beautiful city. Old style homes have been recreated and the Norte Damm Catheral is a magnifient building it is said better then Paris.

There is much to see here - paintings, sculptures and archaeological treasures. We speak French, but would have enjoyed it more if the descriptions had also been provided in English.

I was excited about this museum and all the Egyptian and Greek ruins and artifacts they had and they did have a lot. I had wished that they could have had a brochure with multiple languages on it so we could have known I'd read what we were seeing.

Nice, but like many of these "must-haves" for a city, it doesn't really offer anything special. Nice building, particularly the entrance.
