This was our favorite of the three museums visited on a Tuesday. The collection is just amazing so many lovely things to see - classic and modern juxtaposed !

So easy to imagine life in a 19th c grand town house. I was especially keen to see the china collection and I was not disappointed. Not too convinced about the mix with oeuvre of 20th c artist who designed the Renault logo. All in all a very pleasant hour. Central location.

I'd looked forward to visiting this museum but it wasn't what i expected. Yes, it's small but i wouldn't have minded that too much in other circumstances. What i disliked was that the period furniture and decorative objects have been mixed with pieces of modern art, a mix which does neither the new nor the old any favours. To add insult to injury, as we were literally the only visitors in the house, we were followed from room to room by an employee. I wouldn't have taken any of the modern art if it were offered to me!

My wife and I were looking for something else to see in Avignon while our friends toured the former papal palace. The museum, set in an old Avignon mansion, offers an experience as if you are visiting someone's home from the early 1800's. The period furniture is not roped off, but rather just arranged in each room as if waiting for the evening's guests to arrive. The chinese-themed bedroom with its collection of carved ivory pieces. is mot impressive. However, at 6 euros per person it is a bit pricey. Total time for a leisurely visit: under an hour.

We used to be neighbours so it became my local museum, always following what was going on - and the curator never stops inventing themed events and visiting exhibitions, always so well done and informative. The museum had an evening celebrating renovations that had taken place in December last year (at the same time as our old home 2 doors down). All this incredible work were done by the incredible organisation Monuments Historique, as the buildings are grade one listed, making sure the Avignon heritage is not left to decay, organised and overseen by its expert Architect. The rooms are set ‘almost as was’ with splendid collection of furnitures, paintings and porcelain. In the old ‘caves’ there’s a well spaced exhibition area for visiting collections, often themed. The staff are most kind and helpful. But don’t stop there, visit all the amazing museums Avignon has to offer, all quite stunning for such a small town. One would have to go to Paris for any near match of collections of art.
