The building is really nice and the collection is very good. Definitely worth a look and free for Avignonnais on Sunday!

I just got back from the museum. It is in a nice old house and costs Euro 6. They gave us a brochure in English because the museum is almost entirely in French. There are old paintings, sculptures, more recent art, and Egyptian art objects...More
