The Fragonard museum is located in the Villeneuve hotel, a historic building restored in the spirit of the 18th century Grasse mansions. Dedicated to the most famous child of the city of Grasse, the painter Jean-Honoré Fragonard (1732-1806), this museum presents about fifteen major works of the artist. It also houses a collection of paintings by two other Grasse artists, Marguerite Gérard (1761-1837) and Jean-Baptiste Mallet (1759-1835). This set is the second French collection of works by Jean-Honoré Fragonard after the Louvre and the first for the other two artists. Open 7 days a week from 10 am to 6 pm Visit and free entry.

We brought our kids here and no one had any previous knowledge of the industry. We all found the tour quite informative and felt we all learned a lot. The tour guide was very engaged and made sure to answer questions.

We enjoyed our visit very much. We walked through the ancient perfume tools from different countries and joined the tour telling us how Fragonard began many years ago. We were shown the manufacturing and study of perfumes. It was an informative and amazing experience.
