The Fine Arts Museum in Nîmes was specially built by the native architect Max Raphel in the early 20th century to hold the art works previously housed in the Maison Carrée. The spectacular renovation in 1987 by Jean-Michel Wilmotte gave it a superb setting and a particularly successful museography.
Around a central atrium with two floors of exhibition rooms, you can admire Italian paintings from the 14th to 18th centuries, Flemish and Dutch paintings from the 16th and 17th centuries as well as French paintings from the 17th to 20th centuries.
On the ground floor, the beautiful Roman mosaic, “The Wedding of Admetus", occupies the main part of the atrium.
Throughout the year, theme tours, lectures, cultural activities and educational workshops are offered.
