  • Wonderful collection of art: everything is in perfect condition and really accessible, with no crowds, in comfortable, modern interior. Collection of Musée Granet left a very strong impression on me and I would be happy to come back one day!
  • Fabulous artistic experience. Good quality art from classic to modern. Ingres to Picasso. The extension in an old church is great as well. Good bookshop but lacks a good Cafe!
