I went here based on trip advisor. I walked up from the gardens which took about 10 mins. There was no English text (Arabic and French) which is fine - what do I expect? The thing that bothered me was the layout - there was no structure or signage, I just happened tontine another couple open a door and venture... More

The location of the museum is already spectacular: overlooking a french style garden with fountains and manicured lawns with a view down to the ocean. Then the building itself, set in a lush garden sporting high ceilings and mosaic floors and a panorama roof terrace, is a sight in itself. Last but not least: The collection of impressionist paintings will... More

Nice inner city place to walk and get some fresh air, plant and trees are not well taken care of but generally clean. There is a zoo near the entrance, I'm not a fan of looking up animals so I didn't visit.

This is a very well stocked and curated art gallery - quite a pleasant surprise. Some interesting modern art and an outstanding collection of bronzes.

Beautiful building containing a large collection of mostly French impressionist and modern paintings and sculptures: Pisarro, Degas, Rodin, Monet, and many more. Also some small Buddhas from former French colonies of Laos and Cambodia, and porcelain from China and France. Finally many artworks from Algerian painters, some of whom were students of the great French and Impressionist artists. All this... More

My sister-in-law took us for a visit at the Musee. Don't turn around if you arrive at a closed gate, the small door to the right is open and once we peeked in and said bonjour, the gate was opened for us. A lovely, polite gentleman admitted us and gave us a brief overview. He reappeared from time to time... More

A lovely Museum in an exceptionally rich and beautiful natural park, surrounded by amazing trees in the center of Algiers. Visitors can spend hours without noticing the time. A must while visiting Algiers.
