Musee Calvet Reviews
Musée gratuit en 2019. Belle collection d'art en tout genre. A ne surtout pas manquer pour les amateurs de peinture flamande. more »Free museum in 2019. Beautiful collection of art of all kinds. Not to be missed for lovers of Flemish painting.
In a beautiful, old mansion. Many rooms filled with artwork - mainly from the 15th to 19th century. And one room with Egyptian items. Worth a look, and no entrance fee. more »
I liked the museum, even though I'm not a great expert in modern art. I strongly recommend the Flemish section. Plus: the entrance is free.
A nicely arranged museum with a large number of exquisite works of art. Really friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere
