We dropped in with friends for about 90 minutes; only seven rooms open while we were here. Some interesting local artists from the 1800's.

Not being an art expert I wasn't sure what to expect. Some of the paintings were very minimal and others not very inspiring. At least it was free to enter.. no doubt other people will appreciate it more.

Nice small art gallery on Place Gambetta in the main town of Carcassonne. Many paintings "in the style of" Manet, Van Gogh etc and lots of local artists represented. It is free!

Nothing particularly stunning on the walls but a good selection of western art from 17th to 20th century.

Try to see this building at night because the way it's illuminated is beautiful. Peaceful oasis by a large open square near the new bridge. Varied collection, a few gems - and some interesting temporary shows. Staff very helpful and friendly.

Worth a visit if you like art, good for an hour or two if the weather is wet, cold or windy. A bit of a confusing layout and beware of the middle of the day closing for a couple of hours.

Nothing particularly interesting. The usual bored staff. Mainly paintings. Seemed somewhat run down, as did most of this side of Carcassonne

Set over two floors with free entrance to the Musum worth a visit if a rainy day or if interested in Art.
