“Worth a detour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

Lovely modern museum well worth a visit. Le Cateau is charmingly old fashioned. Reminded me of the France I remembered from my youth!

“A wonderful surprise in an out-of-the-way town.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

We happened across this excellent gallery/museum on our way to Belgium. It's in the town Matisse was born in and housed in a grand maison. Paintings, drawings, sculpture, gouaches, and his famous paper collages are presented in superb minimalist surroundings. Works by artists who were contemporaries of Matisse - Miro, Picasso, Rouault, Giacommetti, Chagall and others are also displayed. It's a fine collection, well worth the effort of seeking it out. Wheelchair friendly and a free audio guide with your admission.

In an area that is rather short on museums, this was a highlight. Allow a couple of hours to give the museum its full value
