Although Arras was in the middle of their big sausage festival the Musee des beaux-arts was open, and entry was free. Not really any "old masters" but I often enjoy galleries with local artists' work more, and this was the case. Some stunning Baglione paintings...More

Small, but has some impressive works of art. A little out of the way, and also located in a former monastery. Worth a visit.

There is an entrance fee (€7/€4), although the museum is free on the first Sunday of each month. Access to the ground floor is okay but I'm not sure about the upper floor.
