I had never heard of Emmanuel Lansyer (a member of the School of Barbizon) before I visited this museum. This is a small museum that packs a big punch. The ground floor is wonderfully decorated in late 19th century style and has dozens of Lansyer's...More

It is a nice house full of the artists paintings. It is in the royal city on the way to the chateau. It is OK if you have extra time

A really interesting 10 minute ( sub titles in English) video introduces the artist and then you are free to walk around his house filled with artwork. The pretty cool garden with exceptional views offers a space to relax. All for only 2 Euros.

Emmanuel Lansyer painted mostly landscape and architecture. These were some of my most favorite pieces, even after seeing the masters at the Louvre and d'Orsay.

Very small, but welcoming. Interesting to add on to other visits in the town, but not worth a trip on its own. Popped in to this museum while walking round the town. The children weren't very interested, age eight and ten, but there was a...More
