We went to the gallery specifically to see this exhibition, but the overall experience is superb. The exhibition itself if excellent, with great pieces intelligently curated. The museum itself is worth a visit and has been refurbished to a good standard. Highly recommended.

Till October there is a temporary exhibition about the impressionist painter, Bazille, who was born in Motpellier. Such amazing paintings were collected not only from his life but also his companions (Monet, Sisly, Delacroix) that cannot be seen at the same place. The price of the ticket is really nothing comparing the collection. What is more your ticket includes a... More

Beautifully modernised major art gallery. We found the main collection a little bit of a struggle - but the seemingly endless pre 19th century religious & mythological scenes etc gave way to some stunning Courbets and above all we enjoyed the more manageable Bazille exhibition (till October), tracing the life of this local painter who was on the verge of...

We planed to go to see the special exhibition and the cashier suggested that as it was Sunday, the main exhibition was free. Perhaps we might want to see that one first.... Two/three hours later we adjourned for a glass of wine... Bought the book to read more about the gallery when back at home and to look at the... More

Very extensive museum with a beautifully curated temporary exhibition, well worth the visit. Apparently the restaurant outside is good too.

Our friends suggested the Musee may be worth a visit. We were lucky to find a major exhibition of Bazille, a key French Impressionist who was from Montpellier. The exhibition was chronological in explaining his life and the development of his style, and included works by Monet, Renoir, Manet and Cezanne to name a few. We found it fascinating and... More

Talented artists, but none that you have ever heard of. OK, there might be one or two works by major artists in here, but essentially these are works that got a bronze medal or honorable mention, not the gold or silver.
