Small, but has some impressive works of art. A little out of the way, and also located in a former monastery. Worth a visit.

Very enjoyable experience. We stayed overnight in Arras whilst visiting WW1 Memorial sites in the region. Would highly recommend taking the time to visit the Museum...the building itself is breathtaking and the treasures inside very interesting. Free entry on Sundays a bonus!!

A wore down building. Big, but stil beautiful. Downside: everything only in french. Positive: a few big painters like Rubens and Breughel. If you have spare time...go see

This museum is amazing when one considers it is located in a provincial town. There is a superb collection of 'Religious' art from the 16th and 17th century, located in an attractive building all for €6!!!. A wonderful way to spend a morning.

There is an entrance fee (€7/€4), although the museum is free on the first Sunday of each month. Access to the ground floor is okay but I'm not sure about the upper floor.
