There are several works by e.g Soutine here which are well worth seeing. There's a reduction for seniors. We didn't have long enough as though we were told we had till closure at 4.00 pm, staff were determined to the point of rudeness that we leave at 3.45.
We arrived to see this much lauded museum a little too close to closing time. The person on reception however, was only too happy to take our money and told us that we had to be out by four. We started wandering around pretty quickly as there was much to see. At 3.50 guards came up to us and told... 更多
The collection was in two locations, sculptures in a church off Jean Juare and the rest of the collection in a restored town house. well worth visiting.
A charming civic collection of 18th and 19th century art, housed within a stunning Hotel Particulier. The building itself is reason enough to visit, but within you will find fine collections of French paintings, as well as a large collection of Ancient Egyptian artefacts. When we visited there was also an exhibition of craft work with pieces made by local... 更多
I just got back from the museum. It is in a nice old house and costs Euro 6. They gave us a brochure in English because the museum is almost entirely in French. There are old paintings, sculptures, more recent art, and Egyptian art objects inside. We were the only ones in the museum so it was very quiet and... 更多
The Musee Calvet provides the opportunity to see many works not widely known by artists particularly from the 19th and 20th century. I had previously seen very few of these paintings and was struck by the breadth of the collection. Well worth a visit.
There are a few interesting works in the collection, including several by Hubert Robert, but on the whole this is a museum you can skip if you're short of time. Some of the best works are copies of other works, by Brueghel, Van den Honthorst, Jeroen Bosch, and the like.
Good place to visit on a Monday - it's open! - but you will have to listen to the loud conversation of the staff as you tour the museum. The lighting is rather weird - some paintings can't be clearly viewed due to the strength of the overhead lights, which is a pity, spoiling the Ricchi and Lottier in particular.... 更多
I was surprised and delighted by the breadth and depth of the collections here. Post impressionists including works by Cezanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin, a number of impressionists, halls of medieval and renaissance paintings, classical statuary and more, all presented in a lovely setting. We did not allow enough time here and were frustrated when we had to leave to catch... 更多
I am a sucker for anything Egyptian, so it was quite cute that one of the employees immediately directed us to that section without our mentioning it. He then followed us around discreetly and would approach us to offer additional information about various items we were looking at. I only speak a bit of French and he only spoke a... 更多
