Once again, in the heart of Avignon just hidden from the main boulevard. Free admission and a nice 2 story collection to explore.

This museum has a decent collection of art from artists - painters and sculptors - from the Avignon and Rhone valley areas of France, with some Flemish artists. Most art is from the 16th - 18th centuries. Worth a stopover.

Entry to this (and all of the city museums in Avignon) is free. The collection is housed in a beautiful 18th century Franco-Italian style mansion with courtyard and garden. The art ranges from Egyptian sarcophagi to 20th century paintings. There are sculptures including a bust...More
