With its emphasis on religious art this may not be to everyone's taste but if you just go in to look at the building itself and the Roman remains in its collection you would get your money's worth. As it is there are Botticellis and Bellinis in here amongst many other gems from the 14th to 17th centuries which are... More

We were very impressed with the calm atmosphere in the Petit Palais after the crowded Palas des Papes. The galleries displayed a range of beautiful paintings and it was possible to view them without being jostled. It's a definite must see in Avignon.

We found the Musee much more interesting than the Palais des Papes. In fact, we did not allow for enough time for our visit! The collection is varied and interesting - devoted to Avignon and medieval art and history with other elements included. We highly recommend. Although my husband and I often have different interests, he wandered off on his... More

Our visit to this muse was truly amazing seeing art works which were not only over 600 years old but absolutely stunning in their detail and workmanship! All staff were very friendly and welcoming and the mini 'high tea' at the cafe at the end was the cap on a memorable visit; recommend highly!!

This museum contains a wonderful collection of Italian Medieval and early Renaissance art -- mainly religious, in a beautiful 14th century building near the Palais des Papes. The day we went there were very few people in the museum and we were able to view the collection at our leisure. If you are interested in art of this period, then... More

This place been known for collection of Italian arts through the years of those popes that shared the authentic beauty of Avignon, an array of original artifacts and things that this place made known and being distinguished by any other provinces of France.

I have nothing to add to the previous reviews except to echo that this is an exceptional collection of Italian paintings, in a quiet gallery. But the added bonus is lunch in the leafy courtyard, away from the bustle of Avignon. We had delicious salads, cool rosé and lovely service. Tea is a specialty and the desserts of our neighbours...
