Well worth the time to explore some great art. There are some real classic paintings here - do not miss! The collection has some excellent lighting which really captures these classic paintings. There are excellent multi-language guides which are really helpful. There are some really...More

Although a relatively small permanent exhibition the Musee Goya was well worth a visit (and just €5 entry including the temporary exhibition can't be bad). Well set out displays and the visiting exhibit was very good.

This museum displays some very interesting spanish paintings. We especially liked the painting "Les mangeurs de moules" by Pedro Nunez de Villavincencio. The temporary exhibit was interesting too.

A small selection of Goya works and some interesting other Spanish artists make this small museum 'ok' but not great. If visiting Chartres be advised that EVERYTHING closes from 2-6.

Castres is a nice town but the Goya Museum's name is rather misleading with little to observe but the building is okay.

This is really worth a visit. Not just Goya, but art from the medieval period through to 20th century. There was also an exhibition of modern art when we were there which was very thought provoking.
