as one of the largest in France this museum offers a large selection of impressionists and 20th c works early Flemish and some rather typical religious boring stuff in between
We saw a wonderful Jan Fabre exhibition with more than 2 dozen large pieces depicting various aspects of life in Congo, all made with scarab beetles (homage to Hieronymus Bosch).

If you're in the area, stop by and see some art. I wouldn't knock yourself out to see this place though as there are many other art museums in France that outshine this place. Nice 4 star place but not really a 5 star place.
Excellent collection of paintings for every taste including Bosch! beautiful Goya, Rubes, etc. Situated in the heart of the city, close to everything. Definitely worth seeing.
Enjoyed our visit. What a journey through art we had. Lots to see all over this beautiful building. The art is laid out very well. Lots of pieces to keep you focused. The price to get in is reasonable and well priced as you are going to experience the art. Good price in my book. Great if you are interested... More
My husband and I are not great art lovers but we spent a couple of interesting hours here. Beautiful building with spacious interior and lots of exhibits presented well. Easy to reach on the metro.
I didn't go in as I only had half an hour to kill. It's €6.50 or €4 (for concessions I assume). The area outside is quite nice and seems to have the only benches in Lille.
