The sculptures are impressive but so it the building they are housed in, the presentation is excellent, with concept sketches and slip castings, stone and bronzes so you follow the whole process. TIP: 4 Euros or for just Euro 15 you can buy a ticket...More

This is one of those Art Galleries not to be missed. Easily overlooked but it's dedicated to a great sculptor of many works that we are familiar with not only in Europe but worldwide during a great period of history.

We are so disappointed that you did not entirerly appreciated the museums... Too bad that you didn't take the combined ticket : 15€ for the 5 museums and the castle (that's a good deal!)

The restoration of the old abbey was the reason why I was interested in coming here. I think it's a good example how to renovate ruins and not making "fake" : you can immediately see, what's new and what's old, but it's still in harmony....More

I'd never heard of David dAngers so to visit the exhibition was a revelation; the man was prolific, extremely talented and the setting for the work on display here is just superb.

In the centre of Angers is this gallery in an old abbey showing some of the casts David d'Angers made for his large commissions. They are amazing. You can also see some of his medallions and drawings.
