“Small but perfectly formed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

I liked the relaxed atmosphere and the room dedicated to local artists (well it was when I visited) suggest they may rotate exhibitions. Staff very laid back but really helpful when approached. They didnt laugh at my terrible French which is always a good thing!

“Great art gallery”

Well worth the visit for art lovers. Ceret has an art trail which is also well worth the time spent walking around the old town.

“Stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

Ceret is a lovely little town in southern France close to the Pyrenees. In the early 1900's, Picasso, Miro and many others were attracted to it due to the light and atmosphere. In the excellent Musee d'Art Moderne are many works by these artists. While I am not a fan of a lot of Modern art, these works were sensational. Many of the works were executed expressly for this Museum. The Highlight for us was the stunning series of ceramic dishes by Picasso on a day at the bullfights. The rest of the permanent collection was great as well. Not so much the special exhibit on Antoni Tapies.
The web site could use some updating as it said the museum was closed on Mondays but we took a chance and it was open on the Monday we were in the area.
