Musee de Picardie reviews
We tried to visit the museum in April 2019 and it's still completely closed. Evidently (according to other reviews here) it has been in some state of restoration since 2016! more »
Still closed. Now expected to reopen some time in 2019. The former Musee de l'art local (in the house of the duc de Berry) is also closed (in 2018), seemingly permanently more »
Shut when we got there due to refurbishment.
Just dare to get inside, it's worth the effort!!
