It was a small museum with wonderful art from the local area. Great way to start the morning before the beach!

Lovely building with museum in basement with other floors an art gallery. Given that it was only the museum that I was interested in, I was quite disappointed. A leaflet in English didn't really explain the exhibits, and there was no other information in English available. Very poor really, or maybe they don't expect us Brits to be interested in such things.

Its placed in the lovely castle area and nice to pop in and have a look round. The curator was very friendly and spoke good English. Some roman artefacts but really an art gallery.

The museum is worth going to, although it is quite small, the admission isn't much. We liked the roman floor most, the rest was pretty much just paintings. There are quite a lot of steps but you can leave buggys by admission desk.

Most of the museum's pieces are quite pedestrian, but the archeological display is interesting and the Roman mosaic excellent. Best of all, the Chagall "Celestial violinist" that almost floats away with joy
