“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

Great collection of art across all periods! Take your time and wear comfortable shoes. Having read up on tripadvisior before we went, we were able to take advantage of Eurostar 241 offer on the entry ticket. The offer of the audio guide is a must BUT make sure you take photoid with you such as passport or drivers license as this is used as a deposit for the iPod fitted with the museum app. The audio guide was a little difficult to use at first; there was little explanation when received. The guides/attendees speak very little English and the audio guide in English does not have guidance on all paintings. A great experience and worth a visit.

“Lovely - beautiful”

Great - beautiful building. Very relaxed. Fantastic displays and paintings . Only spoiled by our own mistake of not using Eurostar 2 for one offer.

“It's not free anymore!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

I didn't go in as I only had half an hour to kill. It's €6.50 or €4 (for concessions I assume). The area outside is quite nice and seems to have the only benches in Lille.

We saw the work of some great masters of art in a very suitable venue. I did miss some more contemporary art in the collection.
