The collection is modest and size, and it contains mostly works of painters of the second and third rank. Still, the piece by Pieter Coecke van Aelst is first rate, and there are other nice works. General admission is free of charge; there is a charge for the special exhibition on collectors to the museum.

Compact but intense gallery of Italian and French painting. Superb restored Roman mosaic floor rescued from somewhere in Nimes. Was free on Sunday.

Just the right size not to be overwhelming. We spent an hour and a half veiwing the museum. Even my husband found it interesting! Worth a visit.

It's a small museum with a huge floor mosaic being its definite highlight. Of painters of any significance they have Rubens and Jan Miense Molenaer and Paul Delaroche's canvas. The museum is free

Tourist blurb says famous French, Italian etc artists. I didn't recognise most of the artists in the collection but there are some wonderful pieces in the collection including sculpture and a beautiful intricate piece of mosaic tiling.

Good collection. Relatively small so do make time to visit as it's not going to eat into too much time. Check opening times.

This is a must for art lovers. It is one of the great museums in the world. The central court has a mammoth Roman mosaic on display.

Small but had a diverse range of French and Italian paintings dating from the 1400's onwards. A better gift shop would have been helpful as we would have bought posters of some of the paintings
