The temporary exhibition was poor and not fascinating. The permanent pieces are exposed in two little aisles. Nice but nothing exceptional.

This art gallery in 2 parts borders the city hall garden. This is a lovely green open space and it would be good to spend time there in warmer weather. inside there are paintings from 15th to 20th century. The south wing has earlier works by such artists as Titian. The north wing has the more modern and contemporary works.... More

There are 2 main wings to this Museum which is housed in the Palais Rohan as well as an annex located a short walk away which houses temporary exhibitions. Masters include Matisse, Rubens, Veronese, Renoir, Picasso as well as local painters. It is recorded as being the largest beaux arts outside of Paris. We were given a guide to the... More

I was a bit disappointed. It is a small gallery contains two parts: right and left side. I felt like been in a gallery with "leftovers" pieces of art from other parts of France unorganized and dropped there. I am always happy to visit fine arts galleries because I know I will experience fascinating and amazing art but there was... More

Art lovers will enjoy this llovely museum with wonderful 15thC - 20thC paintings and sculpture. There is a tranquil garden between the 2 galleries. Well worth a visit!

We spent about an hour here looking at some fine works of art. This museum is included on the City museum pass, available at the tourist office.

There are some very fine paintings in this museum and it is certainly worth the trip. There is not too much to see and you probably only need 1 to 2hours to see it all. It has something to please most people but not in any real depth.

Wonderful collection of paintings and sculpture. Only the North building was open on the day we went, so we were given a discount. 2 euros each made it fantastic value to see 19th centure to modern works. A lovely way to spend a few hours before lunch!

This museum boasts a large collection, which surprised us, as we saw everything available in little more than an hour. In fairness, and for reason unexplained, half of the museum was closed during our visit (15th to 18th c). The 18th to 20th century wing was available. Many interesting pieces, with understandable emphasis on local artists. But the Louvre this... More

This relatively small but well laid out museum consists of three galleries. There are wonderful examples of French Romanticism and early modern paintings. A real treat was the visiting exhibition of black and white drawings/prints/lithographs including Goya and Dore. Very well priced.
