If you love Renascence and Fine Arts this place is well worth visit and an exceptional world of art and history. Large with multiple floors you will be able to travel through the history from the city and exceptional renascence paintings and emotions.

Angers calls itself the "City of History and Art," and the Musee des Beaux Arts is one of the jewels in the crown. The collection does not include any major works but it does include works by major artists such as Rodin, Fragonard, Watteau, Sisley,...More

A beautiful museum that contains beautiful works of all periods. The access is perfect for people with reduced mobility and attentive staff. A very beautiful frame both inside and outside.

I'm giving this museum one star not because there is anything amiss with the museum itself, which has been housed in a fine 15th century building since 1769 and which underwent lengthy refurbishment at the beginning of this century. In fact it is rather fine,...More
