The setting of this gallery, an old abbey church, is outstanding as are the sculptures within. We had not heard of David but were so impressed by his works & will now remember who he was. Loved that he immortalized friends through making busts! Loved also the way we were able to see his preparatory work. So glad this was... More

Just found this gallery while wondering through town and what a hidden gem. The sculptures here were fascinating with a wide variety of subject. Interesting way to spend the afternoon.

David D'Angers was not a sculptor that I had heard of prior to visiting Angers, but having gone round this gallery - and also had a chance to view his work elsewhere- I came to appreciate his talent. He completed numerous works for the Pantheon in Paris, but my favourite works in this gallery were his medals of then famous... More

It is not a massive collection which is nice as you don't have time to get bored, but a lot of them are massive which is fantastic. Do not miss this exhibition of David 's... More

This is a remarkable museum. A medieval church has been repurposed as the perfect place for artist David d'Angers's monumental sculpture. The glass roof lets in gorgeous light that shows off the sculpture to great advantage. A great showcase for dazzling art as well as a unique look at a medieval religious building.

We wouldn't have paid to go it, but got in free (sort of) with our 24 hour City Pass. Once inside, we were impressed by the art on show, all the was of the eponymous sculpture.

Pierre-Jean David of Angers was born in 1788 and this collection of his sculpture includes seemingly everyone who was famous in his lifetime. The quality of his work is to the non-expert almost equivalent to Michelangelo. There are many large statues, together with hundreds of drawings, medallions, busts, and even his pediment of the Pantheon in Paris. In plaster, bronze... More

Situated in an interesting building, the stone works within are amazing. Such detail! Well worth a look around, and no charge if you have bought the City Pass
