“Some good exhibits but information was confusing”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

This is a decent museum and has some excellent exhibits (although the Camille Claudel piece which i really wanted to see was on loan to Dresden!) - however the layout was a bit confusing and especially the paintings seemed to be grouped together in a rather muddled way. The cabinet of curiousities was interesting and would have been even more so if we had been able to make any sense whatsoever of the information which purportedly explained what everything was. The best organised parts were the Roman and mediaeval. Best time to go is Tuesday or the first Sunday of the month when it is free. I would have felt cheated if I had paid €4.

“Quality museum, excellent exhibits”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

Extremely pleased with this museum. The archaelogy exhibit was fantastic and worth the visit. Enjoyed the Rodin and other sculptures and paintings throughout the museum. The cabinet of curiosities completed the tour in a fascinating way. Recommended as an end of the day, relaxing tour.

“Renovation in progress”
Reviewed 4 September 2011

Didn't go in as they are in the middle of renovation and the areas I was interested in - ancient history and medieval are closed. Wish I had known before I did the walk there!
