It has never happened to me to exit an art museum and feel worse than when I entered. It happened today with Musee Cantini. First, the collection is mediocre, with little to offer to a seasoned art lover. The ground floor is entirely dedicated to...More

Dropped in because we discovered that the Burrell exhibit was present and soon to close. Many awesome works from French painters from the mid 1800s; unhurried viewing, up close. Permanent collection includes at least one Cezanne and at least 2 Degas

Nice little museum. Not a particularly large amount to see but a nice selection. The current exhibit on glass works of art is interesting.

A nice gallery in an old modernised building in the city centre with a mixed collection though mostly modern.

We went to see the new exhibition at this museum after seeing a poster for "Le Rêve" in Aix-en-Provence. The exhibition is spread over 3 massive floors with 7 different sub titles. We were so surprised to see basically all of our favourite artists like...More

After seeing ads everywhere for the André Masson exhibition, I thought that we were going to see a good collection of his work, especially seeing the work on poster. However, it was just a collection of drawings, and the painting on the poster was nowhere...More
