Lovely collection of furniture, tapistries and plates going back to the 17thC. Gives you an idea of what is behind Avignon's walls and façades.

This was our favorite of the three museums visited on a Tuesday. The collection is just amazing so many lovely things to see - classic and modern juxtaposed !

So easy to imagine life in a 19th c grand town house. I was especially keen to see the china collection and I was not disappointed. Not too convinced about the mix with oeuvre of 20th c artist who designed the Renault logo. All in all a very pleasant hour. Central location.

I'd looked forward to visiting this museum but it wasn't what i expected. Yes, it's small but i wouldn't have minded that too much in other circumstances. What i disliked was that the period furniture and decorative objects have been mixed with pieces of modern art, a mix which does neither the new nor the old any favours. To add... More

My wife and I were looking for something else to see in Avignon while our friends toured the former papal palace. The museum, set in an old Avignon mansion, offers an experience as if you are visiting someone's home from the early 1800's. The period furniture is not roped off, but rather just arranged in each room as if waiting... More

We used to be neighbours so it became my local museum, always following what was going on - and the curator never stops inventing themed events and visiting exhibitions, always so well done and informative. The museum had an evening celebrating renovations that had taken place in December last year (at the same time as our old home 2 doors... More

Visited this museum partly because it was raining, and partly because I am interested in interior decor and wanted to see the inside of the house in which the museum is located. However, for 4 Euros (discounted with the Avignon pass) I expect more. The museum consists of one room downstairs, which is filled with old furniture (no explanations in... More

This is an elegant little museum in what was once a private house. Downstairs, in an annexe, there was a temporary exhibit of an extensive naturist collection. Drawings of mushrooms and butterfly collections. Interesting. Upstairs is where the real collection is. Louis Vouland was a wealthy collector who brought together a vast number of 17th and 18th century clocks, ornaments... More

This was a lovely surprise. It was easy to imagine how people lived here, with decadent furnishings and personal property throughout the rooms. We were surprised not to have to pay for the pleasure of seeing a lovely home with so much accessible history.

This was a private collection gifted to the city, so very eclectic with some surprising rooms, like the Chinese lounge which was decorated all in red. Some changes have been made since it became a museum and the bedrooms have been given up to an awkward display of porcelain. But all in all, very nice.
