An old but grand convent has been converted to a fine arts museum. High quality and high quantity of art, including a good deal of sculpture. (The collection in the former chapel should not be missed.) Nicely organized on historical lines, no surprises in the...More

Located in a former monastery you can go into the garden for free- your bags are searches but this is it. Beautiful court yard which seems popular with the locals. Also free the access to the refectory- gorgeously renovated. Then the real thing starts and...More

We visited the top floor (19th and 20th century art) and the middle floor for its Egyptian antiquities. There was a little bit of good stuff from a lot of genres but little textual information to go with it and the place was poorly laid...More

A pleasant gallery and museum to see. Highlight for us was the impressionist paintings and a superb lunch in the musem's restarant

There are some great paintings here, particularly if you like 19th century. However the use of space and temporary walls looks a little shabby, and some of the lighting of the paintings is poor. Nonetheless a gallery worth visiting.

This was a surprise, the quality of the pieces in a lovely building. Smaller in scale and all the art pieces very accessible. No crowds. A nice cafe on the upper floor with a view balcony down into the enclosed garden.

This museum is not well laid out and most of the art is fairly average. It was easy to miss whole section because of the poor layout. It was good to get out of the biting wind for a while.

This museum was one of the first places that I visited in Lyon and it gave me good feelings of my visit there. I enjoyed the fine arts collection there. It was a really big collection of beautiful arts in terms of paintings, sculptures, artists....More

The museum is closed on Tuesdays (as are many museums and galleries in France), which meant that we only had two hours on Wednesday morning for our visit. This was nothing like enough, since one would need several days to do justice to this remakable...More
