A museum that is easy to navigate, well curated and active. Not Paris, but for a regional city, found it to be a very nice addition to my trip.

The building and the art are very nice. Loved to see a Picasso and to know you are bringing a Da Vinci. I strongly recommend you acquire a Klaus Enrique.

Wasn't expecting the gallery to be as good as it was, lots of different artwork and some that really struck me. Not a great deal of information in English but we could get by reading the French.
