We visited here on our last day in SW France

We had expected to see more Ingres paintings but the museum was interesting and on lots of floors. I was most impressed by the two lower basement floors.

I came to Montauban for a daytrip and of course I visited the museum. On Ingres there were only two rooms, which is disappointing, plus a temporary exhibition with its sketches. His paintings were interesting but I just walked past everything else.

Ingres and Bourdelle are great artists who made beautiful art. The examples shown are worth the visit. But do not expect any extras because there are none.

This is a lovely little museum and is predominantly focused on the works of Ingres. On that basis, it is excellent. Despite my love of art, I found it somewhat lacking in depth (although with a handful of superb pieces) and the poor availability of English explanations, difficult to engage with emotionally. I would go again to see some of... More

Closed tight 12-2. The guards took a certain pleasure in shooing us away when we had the temerity to arrive at 11:50. What a shame, we'd made a special detour to get there.

I am not a geat fan of Ingres paintings, but I do love the Ingres museum. Because you can see there his violin (Ingres earned his leaving playing violin in an orchestra before leaving to Paris), his collections of art he bought when in Rome (antiques, but also old dutsch and italian paintings), ... and some paintings by him. You... More

This is a surprisingly interesting museum, with a good size collection of paintinings by Ingres and sculptures by Bourdelle. With a guide to explain their local connections, it's a very interesting visit.

The best museum I have visited (many times) with no queuing !! Lots to see from super ceramics( many beautiful and important pieces) to the medieval great hall . One time home of the Black Prince then a Bishops palace.. Perhaps Tarn et Garonne's greatest treasure. There is often a special exhibition from exterior sources (extra charge) Very relaxed staff...

I wasn't familiar with Ingres' art before going to this museum. There are several of his works but a lot of the collection is what he collected over the course of his lifetime. It's probably worth going to see if you are in Montaubon but I wouldn't stop just for this.

Montauban is not really on the Tourist Trail but if you do happen to be passing through, the Musee Ingres is worth a visit. There are 3 floors of gallery space; much of it given over to Montauban's famous sons: Bourdelle and Ingres. Tip: if you want to see Le Vœu de Louis XIII by Ingres you will need to... More
