“Great museum with lots of Renaissance art”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

This is a great little museum. It is packed with Renaissance art and even a couple by Botticelli. When we visited, the place was empty. There might have been three other visitors. In fact, there was more museum staff than tourists. After visiting the bare rooms of Pope's Palace, cross the courtyard and enjoys the artwork!

“Spectacular”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Worth the trip just for the one or two Botticelli paintings, however this building is beautiful and jammed full of important medieval and renaissance art. Takes 2-3 hours to see everything.

“Italian art”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

If you like gold religious paintings of the Renaissance, this is your place. Otherwise, go look at the view from the rocher des doms.

“If Renaissance Art is your thing”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Although there was only one painting by an artist I've heard of (so not exactly the superstars of Renaissance Art), there was some fabulous art there. If you like this sort of art this is well worth a visit and only 3 euros if you use the Avignon Passion card (and you've already paid full price somewhere else). And we practically had the place to ourselves. The attendants do watch you like a hawk though, but this doesn't bother me, but i know it bothers some.
