  • The place was very nice. Time has been heard... I was surprised. In Avignon I thought it was the best art museum in the east... This place is free, lots of works (28000), and a wide mob of times. More good. In particular, the death of David's Mara, and the death of a pair, are here. There are a lot of famous things such as Knockout, Sisley, Shaim Sustin, Bonar, Raul du blood, etc.

  • The Rue Joseph Vernet, housed in the former Vilnev Hotel, has a magnificent collection of fine art. The Exhibited works made a good impression. During The visit there were not many visitors, the rooms are spacious, which allowed to quietly study the works. The Opportunity to inspect the permanent collection was provided free of charge.

  • 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
