What we saw was excellent with many well known artists' works. Yet the first floor was closed and I think we paid full admission. My favorite work was Bernini's Virgin and Child with Angel. We also walked the main shopping street and bought a few...More

An unusual collection by Napoleon's uncle, the Cardinal Fesch. Some hallways are lined with basic still-life and kitchen scenes, then you turn to see stunning religious icons, some rare, some simply unique or unknown. A great visit for art lovers and quite honestly, Catholics. The...More

Obviously many religious paintings, but also some good and strange works, well worth a visit. Opening times a bit odd.

Mostly paintings that you can watch but nothing loses without visiting this place even if you are a connoisseur of painting.

I'm sorry I really don't know the answer to this. I didn't see any wheelchairs but that doesn't mean anything. I also didn't see elevators, but probably there is one. The museum entry is on street level. I would see if the... More
