This is a super little museum and a great combination with the papal palace. If you can do one museum inaddition to the old Popes palace then I recommend this one. I checked up some of the other museums and they just did not have the charm or the quality of artwork that this museum has. Plus the building is... More

A good museum with some interesting statuary - particularly relating to the Avignon popes - and some very nice early Italian paintings. didn't like the modern art at all!

We enjoyed this museum. The staff was helpful, and the art and exhibits were delightful. Lots of places to sit and look and relax.

This is a must see. The art work is wonderful and the building is beautiful. Give yourself time to see all of the rooms.

An interesting collection of gothic and early renaissance art. More explanatory material would be helpful as it was quite hard to get an overview of the progress of the collection.

Visited on our last morning as it was raining, it started out quite interesting to see the icons and the age of some of them was mind blowing, but it's huge! Ended up walking straight past a couple of rooms as I was all Icon'd out. No concession to English on any of the descriptions, so a lot of information... More

Now to be honest, most religious paintings are not to my taste but I did want to see Botticelli's Madonna and child and that was probably worth the admission charge alone! There are several other paintings, icons, and so on, worthy of inspection with some by the great painters of the renaissance period. The palace itself is also an interesting... More

This museum and art gallery has nearly all it's works from the 14th and 15 th century which are not really to my taste, but it was well laid out and easy to get round. It is probably worth the visit just to see Botticeli's Madonna and child.

Really enjoyed spending time in this well laid out museum. It was full of very interesting pieces. Lovely tea area away from the hustle of the main square. Time to sit and reflect and enjoy the most delicious tarts and cakes.
