“Two museums in one”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

This started out as an historical museum, then turned into the art museum. The collection was worth a visit if visiting Angers.

“First, you have to take the history lesson”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

So they make you go to the historical exhibit before you go to the art museum, which would be really annoying except that the historical part is really good. My favorite was a Boucher I hadn't known of, with putti working on the arts, and a modern piece which had a bowl of goldfish in front of the painting. Completely satisfying, and not crowded at all.

“Very attractive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2012

Not a lot of "unique" art work but quite enough to make a visit worthwhile. Beautiful architecture. Well preserved area. A couple of interesting "sculptures" by Niki de St-Phale in the gardens.

“An unexpected gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

This is a wonderful museum housed in a beautiful old palace. The art collection is good and diverse (though, of course, modest in size), and it was fun to walk through the museum to view the collection. Well worth spending an hour or two.
