We found that the museum is a bit pricey, €10 each, for the amount of art there is, especially as one of the rooms was closed for a few notes being added, not even art being put up. Although there is a lift inside the...More

We're just back from a one hour trip. We learned far more than we had anticipated. There are some very fine paintings here. For example, from Croatia about ten paintings done under glass which is incredibly difficult :think the reverse of stained glass - it...More

After visiting the Musee des Beaux Arts (lots of signage) we wanted to go to the Musee International d'Art Naif. We were unable to find any signs. Asked several locals who clearly had never heard of the museum. Eventually we got sick of walking around...More
