This museum is right next door to the Palace of the Popes and contains many fine paintings from the Middle Ages, plus a number of sculptures. Do use the audio guide

I wish we had had more time to do this fine museum and gallery justice. It is located near the Pope's Palace in the same square and is housed in a 14th century building. This collection reflects Avignon's style and prominence during the Renaissance period....More

Good selection of mainly Italian medieval paintings. No real masterpieces, but the chronological hangings give a good impression of the development from the 13th to the 16th century. You will also be on your own and everything is air-conditioned.

We visited this museum on our last day and it was worth the wait. Although its name suggests its a small museum there is lots of wonderful religious paintings to see. It is very well displayed, our only criticism was that there was not an...More
