These galleries have an amazing and varied art collection. Quite remarkable and a must for those who like early 20th century art although the collection goes well beyond that period

This is a small museum with an eclectic mix of art. The founders story is quite interesting. I was a bit disappointed that they only had a few Cezanne paintings and about half were lent out to other museums when I visited.

We visited this museum expecting to see a lot of Cezanne and impressionist paintings. There is not a clear focus in the museum. It contains single paintings of famous artists and a beautiful collection of sculptures. We also visited the Jean Planck collection which is...More

The museum is open every day except Mondays, and is filled with fine exhibits of local archaeological finds, paintings and sculptures. There are lockers for bags, and a cloakroom that is also kindly offered to patrons free of charge. If you happen to be visiting...More
