A nice house with a collection in search of cohesiveness. When we visited there were pieces of modern art placed willy-nilly in with the permanent collection.

Lovely collection of furniture, tapistries and plates going back to the 17thC. Gives you an idea of what is behind Avignon's walls and façades.

This was our favorite of the three museums visited on a Tuesday. The collection is just amazing so many lovely things to see - classic and modern juxtaposed !

So easy to imagine life in a 19th c grand town house. I was especially keen to see the china collection and I was not disappointed. Not too convinced about the mix with oeuvre of 20th c artist who designed the Renault logo. All in...More

Visited this museum partly because it was raining, and partly because I am interested in interior decor and wanted to see the inside of the house in which the museum is located. However, for 4 Euros (discounted with the Avignon pass) I expect more. The...More

This is an elegant little museum in what was once a private house. Downstairs, in an annexe, there was a temporary exhibit of an extensive naturist collection. Drawings of mushrooms and butterfly collections. Interesting. Upstairs is where the real collection is. Louis Vouland was a...More

This was a lovely surprise. It was easy to imagine how people lived here, with decadent furnishings and personal property throughout the rooms. We were surprised not to have to pay for the pleasure of seeing a lovely home with so much accessible history.
