Go before March 20th if you can and catch the special Versailles exhibition. It's superb. If you've ever wondered what it would be like to stand in the centre of one of Versailles' great fountains (but without getting wet) this is your chance.

This small museum has some interesting local pieces, but the main attraction is the temporary Versaille exhibition. This is well laid out and quite fascinating. I learnt more about the Palace, and particularly the gardens than when I visited Versaille.

We'd really come to see the Lens Louvre but decided to stay to Arras and thought we'd look in on the local Musee. It was well worth the visit - a surprisingly big collection and some nice pieces. If you;re there and like art don't...More

Excellent exhibition around Versailles fountains and bosquets with pieces of bronze animals saved from fountains that exist no longer. There are pièces of furniture, paintings, sculptures and porcelaine too. The most remarquable is the staging, the " mise en scène", very well done. The rest...More

Probably not the best place to visit if you're not keen on 17th/18th century oil paintings/religious paintings or pottery. Top floor housed more interesting (and more recent) art but otherwise not really my cup of tea. Building was quite interesting - especially black and white...More

I must say that the 17th and 18th centuries are not my favourite period for art. Having said that, the museum was very quiet when I visited on a Wednesday afternoon and I could have taken as long as I liked. One criticism was that...More

The Musee has good collection of 17,18,19th century paintings and ceramics but the best part was the special exhibition of carriages and sleighs from the Palace of Versailles. The extensive collection included carriages used by kings and queens as well as Napoleon 1st and 2nd....More

The carriages were magnificent and you could view them easily as it was not too crowded. The workmanship, painting and opulence of the carriages and sleighs made the visit well worthwhile. The only problem was getting a ticket as there seemed to be confusion amongst...More

Well worth a visit. We saw the carriages and they were amazing. Always good to navigate a museum with two kids in tow and for them to be entertained. Highlight of our trip.

My husband and I spent a morning touring the Versailles exhibit of carriages and sledges. The Musee de Beaux-Arts and Versailles formed a partnership and this exhibit in Arras includes articles and paintings originating from Versailles. I was very impressed with the finery and craftsmanship...More

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.
