“Fantastic selection of sculptures, paintings, murals”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

I am not a great art buff but I visited the Granet museum during the Frieda Burda special exhibition and all the great painters - both new and old - ranging from Picasso in his later years to some pretty ancient sculptors were included in the exhibition so it was varied and interesting. Allow minimum 2 hours as were found ourselves rather rushed.

“Visit to the Granet Museum”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Great display of renaissance paintings, also American impressionist collection in basement. We went the first Sunday of the month and was surprised to find it was free. But it would be worth paying for.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

Not much to see in this museum and definitely not worth the admission charge. Spend your money in a nice cafe instead.
