When we arrived at the museum, the staff clearly explained that during refurbishment only a small portion of the collection was visible. The salon has been hung with extra paintings to give a sense of the collection; unfortunately, the lighting is not suitable, and it is very hard to see most of them without shine. I would be interested in... More

Amiens which was almost destroyed in World War 1 is a beautiful city. Old style homes have been recreated and the Norte Damm Catheral is a magnifient building it is said better then Paris.

I was excited about this museum and all the Egyptian and Greek ruins and artifacts they had and they did have a lot. I had wished that they could have had a brochure with multiple languages on it so we could have known I'd read what we were seeing.

Nice, but like many of these "must-haves" for a city, it doesn't really offer anything special. Nice building, particularly the entrance.

They have quite a nice collection but it's all presented in a bit of a stuffy old fashioned way. Just a good alternative on a rainy day.

My friend and I visited here while in Paris. A beautiful building with lots of hidden treasures inside. you really get a sense of the time period in which it was built. Lots of historical things to see and red about. Very enjoyable.

I don't quite understand the hype surrounding this museum. To me it didn't stand out: it housed the usual collection of paintings, and artefacts relating to natural, ancient and early modern history. Interpretation was lacking in some parts. The set-up of the museum was a little dull, to be honest. Still, it's well worth a visit if you like museums.... More

This small museum is housed in a beautiful building, worth visiting in its own right. The top floor was being refurbished so many of the paintings were crowded into the main hall. Most of the art is from less well-known artists, but nonetheless good. The scupture gallery is very good, and the basement exhibition of antiquities worth seeing.

This museum is a real gem. Tons of history, culture, art, everything a museum visitor could hope for. Especially strong in paleolithic artifacts and the history of the region. A top flight museum.
