It is good to go there when it is raining. I went there on a Sunday and was really nice. They have two sections, for modern and classic art. Nice stuff, I liked the old paintings and bronze statues. Not expensive to enter, around 6...More

The museum and associated garden were under construction when we visited, another problem was a scorching heat wave, unfortunately the place is not air conditioned. If not under construction you have two beautiful classic buildings with a garden in between. One problem is some of...More

The exhibition is placed on the ground floors of two buildings. Not very much to offer, but if you are in Bordeaux, it is a good place to spend time

The art work is split between 2 buildings in beautiful settings and is well worth a visit. It's only 5 euros entry per person so we thought it was good value for money. It's a mix of art and sculptures with some impressive pieces.

If you go it won’t take too long. Very few interesting works of Rubens, Bruegel, etc. Sunday is free to visit.

In common with many provincial museums, this is more relevant to civic pride than Art history. The museum repeatedly apologises for it's lack of any noteworthy artists. There are one or two fine pieces and some muddy impressionists. Otherwise I'd stroll around the gardens and...More
