This museum is off the beaten track, in the hills above Banyuls, which makes it very disappointing to find it closed for the whole week, for an exhibition to be mounted. We weren't the only visitors to arrive today and yesterday. Not a word on...More

Not a big collection, but interesting sketches and small sculptures to give a look into his work. The place is nice to visit.

Situated in the vineyards and olive trees close to Banyuls the small museum is a tribute to Maillol who once lived there. It's a beautiful setting.

We walked to the musee from Banyuls sur Mer (4km, not 10, as stated in the review below) and found the variety of Malliol's work on display modest to say the least. The exhibition was supplimented with a collection of Marilyn Monroe photographic portraits, which...More
