Vast collection, looks like a hoarder's place. The lesser known Venus of Botticelli seems to be the leverage to get people inside. Lovely garden, such a shame that the building itself is not given the focus and the attention it deserves.

…..for what was once such an importance cultural centre as Avignon, the predominantly Italian and pre-renaissance collection is the result of several donations, a rambling agglomeration of very second rate works that bear no relationship to the setting or the city. Rather than looking at...More

Very interesting museum, and a MUST if you are in Avignon! This is located right next to the Pope's palace and  counts with very interesting pieces of cart starting from the 14th Century.

If you are an art lover, then don't miss this lovely museum. For 3 euros each, it is a gem. The collection includes ancient frescoes and building fragments from medieval times, but the highlight is the room of Botticelli paintings including his Virgin and Child,...More

Very educational because the collection is meticulously arranged chronologically, annotated and complemented with political maps for each period.The earliest pièces are I think some sculptures and triptychs 12-13 th C finishing at the mid-16th C (I think). There's even a Botticelli. The building is worth...More

This was a nice spot to stroll through centuries of artwork all housed in a historic building. I enjoyed the variation in the artwork as well as the architecture of the building itself.
