We needed to fill some time on our last day so popped to this free museum. We’re no art buffs but managed to while away half an hour here.

What a find! We were strolling and came upon the museum by accident. So happy we decided to check it out. Vast collections. We enjoyed our visit immensely. And it's free❤️
The museum is well organized and maintained. I’m very surprised that the regional musée des beaux-arts is of a decent quality but free. You will discover some paintings from the 17th-19th centuries that feature the region’s views and people.
