Now, I must say that this type of art museum may not be suitable for everyone, but I personally found this very interesting - one of the largest museums in France (and as I was told, perhaps the largest outside Paris).
There is a very good range of art on show here, from your Renaissance oil paintings to a mix of 17th, 18th and 19th century items, right up to the Picasso pieces and early 1900s sculptures.
What is more, I found the plain relief models in the basement of this museum to be greatly interesting - numerous French, Belgian and Dutch cities are mapped out on a series of tables - in decent detail too!
A couple of hours could easily be spent in this museum.
