Although this is not the Louvre or the Prado, the museum has a significant collection of European Masters, and lesser known artists. Nicely arranged on several floors, both the paintings and sculpture are nicely presented. This museum is well worth several hours visit and, if...More

This is a lovely place to visit. A major theme was making the museum accessible to people with visual or hearing disabilities,which I think is very thoughtful and adds many insights for everybody. Two of the guards on the main floor were exceptional. They not...More

There are some real gems here and a chance to learn about some lesser-known artists of a high standard. But there is also a lot if junk and reducing the number of works by half would cause no loss and make it easier to appreciate...More

I really liked how the art was arranged by time periods - helped to understand the progressions of style. Very well rounded display of artists; portraiture, landscapes, still lives, small, big. Also a couple of rooms with sketch pads. I had no problems going up...More

We saw very little of the permanent collection. We spent most of our time in the special exhibit of paintings of native son Frédéric Bazille, which was superb. From what I saw of the rest of the museum, it definitely merits a visit.

We toured the museum and a Brazille exhibit. Outstanding collection of Brazille paintings and sketches as well as paintings by Monet, Manet, Renoir and others. A mind-blower to see so many master impressionists in the museum. Their other collected items are also excellent.

Would the Musee Fabre be suitable for children of 10 and 14 years old? Do we need to pre-book tickets or can we just buy tickets on the day? Is there a restaurant or cafe inside? Thanks. Li
