A thoroughly enjoyable museum - which I seemed to have largely to myself! The astonishing variety of exhibits ranged from Egyptian mummies to C21 lyrical abstract art via a fine assemblage of Greek pots, Alaskan funerary masks and the art of Polynesia. There's an interesting...More

We visited the "Americans in Boulogne" exhibition and the museum but ran out of time for the vaults. Well laid out and thoughtfully planned. Educational and enlightening. Well worth a visit

The museum and gallery are situated in a very impressive chateau. The various displays within the museum are not huge, but are not the usual museum display. From Egypt to the Aleutians and everything in between, make the effort, you will be glad you did!...More

In the main museum there are sections for beaux-arts and for local history, which are nice but pretty standard. There are also Egyptian items and ancient Greek vases. To me the most interesting part was where they showed cultural items from Alaska. This part of...More
