A nice house with a collection in search of cohesiveness. When we visited there were pieces of modern art placed willy-nilly in with the permanent collection.

Lovely collection of furniture, tapistries and plates going back to the 17thC. Gives you an idea of what is behind Avignon's walls and façades.

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!
