We should systematically offer a visit to Matisse's family home. We had to ask for the address.
Le musée est très beau dans un ancien monument mais réaménagé de manière moderne. Le lieu est très intéressant avec l'audioguide et les œuvres également. more »The museum is very beautiful in an old monument but redesigned in a modern way. The place is very interesting with the audioguide and the works also.
Matisse put French early 20th century painting on the fauvist trail. Excellent, low priced museum for the quality it offers. It puts Matisse in perspective with his contempories.
Interesting museum of Matisse's work. Nice public gardens.
