Musée des Beaux-Arts (Museum of Fine Arts) Review

Designed by Clément-Marie Josso, this noted museum was opened in 1900. Inside, skylights cast their glow over a fine array of paintings, extending from the Renaissance period onward, including works by Jacopo Tintoretto, Georges de La Tour, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, and Gustave Courbet. To go from the sublime to the ridiculous, look for the famous late-19th-century painting of a gorilla running amok with a maiden. The main palais is closed for renovations until 2018, but the Chapelle de l'Oratoire (Place de l'Oratoire) will host temporary exhibitions of the permanent collection in the interim.
