    A Huge Collection
    Worth visiting if you have limited time in Montpellier. We were only in the city for one day, and chose the Fabre Museum as one of the few attractions we visited. There is a huge amount of art to see, both modern and old. A great collection from across Europe. A slightly pricy entry fee, however given the scale of the exhibition it was worth the entry fee.

    Nice Collection
    There is a very large collection of antiquity and Renaissance paintings. It’s a bit of a maze to walk through, but eventually you get to the Modern art on the top floor. There are a couple notable works by Delaunay, Monet, and Manet as well as a Botticelli, a Michelangelo, and a room of Corbet. Very nice museum.

    Wide range well displayed
    A large art gallery housed in a number of buildings of various ages with the hôtel Cabrières-Sabatier across the road featuring decorative arts (particularly 19th century furniture) and currently closed for restoration. The interior of the main buildings is resolutely modern and much of the collection is the result of gifts from local wealthy collectors. Mostly a panoply of French art through the ages but the Flemish section of pictures from the Golden Age would feel very much at home in virtually any Dutch or Belgian art museum. There is something for everyone here and you don't have to spend time on the bits which don't appeal to your personal taste.

    Baffling and beautiful
    There is a lot of art worth enjoying in this museum ... some absolute gems plus good temporary exhibitions. But the route through was totally bewildering and I felt I needed a much better explanation of the curatorial journey. Up and down and back to front. Aargh!! It was apparently been refigured in 2004-2007 but this is definitely not with the clarity that the "practical guide to visiting the museum" proclaims. A pity

We visited on the first Sunday of the month so it was free entry, but I would have been happy to pay as the collection was massive and had lots of great paintings

A great way to spend a rainy day in Montpellier. A big variety of art works from all eras. Nicely presented. Didn't notice a cafe though but there are some nearby.

This is a masssive museum with encrible artwork that walks you through time. The museum is made of three buildings as it has grown through time and I found it very difficuly to visit in a logical and menaingful manner. Likemany things in France, it´s a museum for the French and not al friendly to tourists. This was very disheartening and the only way to make some sense of what is before you, is to hire the guide track. Please do hire one if you aren´t fluent in French: you´ll mis all the fun.

It was good to see the permanent collection, some paintings by Impressionist and there were also local artists.

Did not see anything after 1900, I think, I just do not appreciate modern art...the paintings are exquisite, both biblical, and personal portraits...
