“Solid collection”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Not amazing but solid collection of modernist french art - most of the impressionists and modernists are represented by 1-2 paintings. A bit dreary and they like to close 30 min before the stated closing time.

“Great collection”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

This small museum has an incredible collection of paintings and sculptures including a number of French artists from the 16th century to the present. Don't miss the Rodins.

“Refreshing”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

After slogging through crowds at museums in Paris, this was a refreshing change. No crowds (at least on a rainy Thursday morning), interesting variety, beautiful works, gorgeous building. 7 Euros for adults, kids free. If you only have time for a brief visit, the museum offers a nicely done brochure, also on the website, of works you shouldn't miss.

“Art & Food”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

The art was worth writing home about, nonflash photos allowed, and my wife & I enjoyed the restaurant food.
