This is a MUST SEE Museum! If you like sculptures and fine art, this is the place for YOU! A. Bourdelle was brilliant and way ahead of his time!

Always excellent exhibitions around sculptures, modest but very didactical, and the spaces are very pleasant because of the scenography, which explains the artistic process.
