Fodor's Review

Designed by Clément-Marie Josso, this noted museum was opened in 1900. Inside, skylights cast their glow over a fine array of paintings, 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 currently closed for renovations, but the Chapelle de l'Oratoire (on Place de l'Oratoire) hosts temporary exhibitions of the permanent collection in the interim.
