Gorgeous building and some interesting exhibits. One of 4 or 5 free museums in Avignon now - thanks to tourist information for telling me.

I’m of the mindset that I’m growing out (if not already there) of being part of a crush of tourists to enjoy fine art. Better are the smaller galleries, such as this one, where there is space to take in all the splendour. I was...More
