We considered very interesting this part ot the Catholic Church history that we did not know. In the real place they tell in a very nice way the history of the time that the Popes were in Avignon and not in Rome. Avignon had 9 popes living there during almost a century.

some really good examples of Iconography and early 13th 14th religious century paintings.
It covers a few floors so be ready for a walk and stairs.
It really is a great exibition but there is little else except the pictures.

The museum was unstaffed when we arrived (3.30 pm) and we nearly left before someone turned up. Bags are NOT allowed in. The religious art was very interesting and well arranged chronologically. A super Botticelli was probably the best piece. The rooms had a good level of information in a variety of languages. Our main (and it was VERY irritating) complaint was that the staff followed us about from room to room watching us. Whilst appreciating that they want to keep an eye on the pictures, their surveillance was very intrusive and uncomfortable. This was unnecessary as there were only 6 people in the entire place + webcams. We left early.

Small and somewhat limited collection of religious and other art works, but worth a visit if in the area and ties in nicely with a visit to the nearby Papal Palace.

Easy museum to walk through with some real gems hidden here. As was interrupted by the museum lunch break was able to return to finish the rooms. (Keep you tickets) Only negative is that you are constantly watched by the staff.
