“a nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013

This is a museum of art located in a mansion, the "Logis Barrault" building, at the place Saint-Éloi. It is part of the Toussaint complex, which includes the garden of Fine Arts, the David d'Angers gallery, the city library and the canteen. It is worth to see it. You can have a discound ticket which will include and the castle in good price. All are very close to each other. Two or three temporary exhibitions are presented annually at the museum in the temporary exhibition hall,and also there is the permanent exhibition of David d Angers.

“A fine showcase for a City of Art”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

Angers has several art venues, not forgetting the magnificent Apocalypse tapestry in the Château itself. The Musée des Beaux Arts is a fitting venue for an exposition of the City's history, both archaeological and artistic. Housed in a beautifully renovated ancient building, in the recently restored town centre, there is much to see. We managed a free visit one year, on the 'Night of the Museums', when historical buildings and Museums open their doors to the public free, or with reduced price, accompanied by special events, musical, poetic etc.
There is some fine art and I recommend the work of 19th century painter Alsatian Jean-Jacques Henner. We could not leave without purchasing a print of his 'Portrait de Laura Leroux'.

“Not child friendly”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

We went there as a family over Easter holidays. Staff were most un-child friendly which was a pity as our grandsons love looking at the art. Had to ask for childrens pack to go around the gallery.
Ate in the cafe which was child friendly and good value for Angers.
