Nice museum, if you like art, you are going to love it. If you are not a huge art fan, I’d say you don’t have to go out of your way to visit it. Nothing special.

Nice one, yet you can easily avoid it. No big deal, i think that a nice walk by the river is much more satisfactory.

located at one minute walking distance from the Cathedral and Hotel Groslot, this mid size museum is very rich in paintings and famous for Chardin's pastel.One hour and half are enough for a quick survey.
