A small museum housed in the former home of Francois Millet, the most famous artist of the Barbizon school. Known for the Angelus (de Millet). The exhibition is nothing special but it is interesting to see the actual place where Millet lived and worked.

Filled with pieces from Millets original studio. Great information. A real treat to see where Millet worked. The town is beautiful and highly recommend a day trip or stay over night.
