The building is great and view from balcony overlooks entire city. However, the art exhibit at the time was of an old cartoon on French TV.

Great place to visit to look at the collection but really the view from the top is amazing. Make the time to go and enjoy the climb up the hill.

The collection of the Musee is very interesting. The view from the Chateau is wonderful. You can walk up the Chateau from the Old Town.
