  • I wasn't really aware of Granet as an artist before, but I very much enjoyed this collection. He was both talented and prodigious,creating many attractive little sketches and some large complex...

  • A beautifully presented collection of interesting artefacts arranged in a lovely setting. A bonus is the admission to the annex gallery that has a surprising collection of stunning art by Picasso...

  • We recently visited,we can easily visit this place with @google maps help. You can take help of local transportation as well but if u wish to take walk it hardly 10 minutes walk from main city centre. Cost 5 💶 +1 Europe if you want to visit one more place which is just 5 minutes of walk. It is clean and you need to wear mask 😷 and health pass is mandatory (if you are Indian and you had taken 2 dose that certificate is valid). They have audio guide were you can select multiple languages and understand that. They had security guards also if need you can ask them also but for better understanding prefer audio guide. It will cost 3 euro💶 per place. So total 6 euro for both. It is little heavy on your pocket bt if you have interest then worth spending. If you are a person who have interest in art, history then this is a go to place. Duration can be 2 hours if you go into details.
  • Did not see at its best as many rooms were closed due to the end of the Egyptian exhibition. Whatever you do do not miss the Annexe housing the Planque donation. Truly stunning.
