We wouldn't have paid to go it, but got in free (sort of) with our 24 hour City Pass. Once inside, we were impressed by the art on show, all the was of the eponymous sculpture.

Pierre-Jean David of Angers was born in 1788 and this collection of his sculpture includes seemingly everyone who was famous in his lifetime. The quality of his work is to the non-expert almost equivalent to Michelangelo. There are many large statues, together with hundreds of...More

The building that houses the galerie is a piece of art itself. An old abbey which had it`s roof fall in was reconstructed with a soaring glass ceiling. The light and high ceilings add to the presentation of the statues and other carvings. The city...More
