Musee Des Beaux-arts De Nantes, Nantes Reviews - Write a Review

  • The museum collection is located in the three buildings: the Palace, Cube and Chapel. Navigation between buildings is not clear and it is very easy to get lost. Classical art collection is interesting and contains mosty French artists. You can easily spend at least two hours here.

  • We were really impressed with the building and the art curation within it. The staff were really helpful when we arrived, or son is in a wheelchair and one of the assistants got our tickets for us so we did not need to queue. The building is beautifully designed and the rooms are well themed and contain interesting pieces of art and included a number of Monet's and Rodin's. The collection is obviously not on a par with aTate or Guggenheim but if you are in the area setting aside a couple of hours or more to visit this gallery is very much recommended.

  • Well presented collection, attractive building well signposted from city centre. Good range of artists but disappointing on the impressionists. Expensive entry but concessions are available.. Could have done with English translations on the boards in each room as they're only in French.

  • An excellent art gallery, recently refurbished, with everything from Monet to modern art on two floors and video installations in the basement.

  • Very welcoming with friendly English speaking staff. Some very interesting art on display from well known and not so well known artists.
