Granet Museum Reviews & Ratings
Very good museum with high quality works of art. Although the museum is relatively small, I would still advise pacing oneself. Between the main museum and the chapel extension a few blocks away (which was included in the price of the ticket), there are numerous wings and many pieces to view on several levels.
Worth see but the information is only in French and more than short. The descriptions, even if only in French, could be much better
Quite interesting Museum, masterpieces from very different period. Take around one hour to visit. but there is also an other part included in the ticket which is located 5 minutes walk from the main building
There are paintings from some very famous French artists. One star off for not putting up English names of paintings. Google translate to rescue.
Very quiet, calm and nice ❤️
