This museum is amazing when one considers it is located in a provincial town. There is a superb collection of 'Religious' art from the 16th and 17th century, located in an attractive building all for €6!!!. A wonderful way to spend a morning.
We came across this lovely museum while on a walk exploring the city. We had the place mostly to ourselves and we really enjoyed the variety of the art on display. We loved the choices of distinct, bold colours in the various galleries that served to highlight the paintings very well. The one problem we had was the fact that... 更多
Went to see the exhibition of 100 pieces of art from Versailles - beautifully presented and well worth it. However, museum policy is to close for lunch and our visit to the rest of the collection was cut short.
We were lucky that our stay coincided with the Versailles exhibition which is on until early 2016. What can I say! It was almost better than being at Versailles itself! Obviously not the exterior but for details of the interior and some of the exhibits it was breathtaking. Bravo Arras!

Admission is 10E, so we expected lots to see. There was a special exhibition recreating Versailles, which was very good, but apart from that, very... 更多
This is an excellent small museum located in a huge old monastery. When we visited, there was a special exhibition of treasures from Versailles which really added to the good collection of paintings and scultures that are part of the permanent collection. One room full of HUGE paintings was very interesting as I had never seen so many immense paintings... 更多
