I’m of the mindset that I’m growing out (if not already there) of being part of a crush of tourists to enjoy fine art. Better are the smaller galleries, such as this one, where there is space to take in all the splendour. I was...More

This museum has a decent collection of art from artists - painters and sculptors - from the Avignon and Rhone valley areas of France, with some Flemish artists. Most art is from the 16th - 18th centuries. Worth a stopover.

Two floors containing a very good and solid art collection, with a specific focus on French artists. Also the Hotel Particulier, is beautiful. The entrance is free for this museum.

This is housed in a beautiful old building. There is a large room of Egyptian items and a lot of very large classical paintings, but nothing later than early 19th century. Some attractive sculptures. We didn't use the audio guide.
