We were nicely surprised by the multitude and beauty of the exhibited works ranging from clerical pieces (with a medieval clergyman wearing spectacles) to late (Guernica) etches by Picasso. Nice view from the museum windows over the episcopal park. Worth the detour!

Although a relatively small permanent exhibition the Musee Goya was well worth a visit (and just €5 entry including the temporary exhibition can't be bad). Well set out displays and the visiting exhibit was very good.

This museum displays some very interesting spanish paintings. We especially liked the painting "Les mangeurs de moules" by Pedro Nunez de Villavincencio. The temporary exhibit was interesting too.

A small selection of Goya works and some interesting other Spanish artists make this small museum 'ok' but not great. If visiting Chartres be advised that EVERYTHING closes from 2-6.

The museum was advertised as the best in Spanish art after the Louvre. There were only a few Goya paintings. The museum covers Medieval art through to the 20th century and exhibits paintings, sculptures and even an armoury room. There is not a lot of...More
