  • Well worth a visit! The museum and gallery is beautifully arranged in a visually stunning building that's worth seeing on its own. We came specifically to see the work of Seraphine Louis, which was...

  • This museum is stronger for archeology than art, though it does have a good collection of local artists and some fine Flemish sculptures.

  • Excellent small museum with a good collection of Gallo-Roman artifacts, gargoyles from the Senlis Cathedral and paintings covering a range of periods. The gallo-roman pieces are from a local sanctuary discovered in the late 1990's. Very interesting film on their discovery and potential meaning. Videos are available in French and English. Descriptive cards for the displays are available in English and German. Staff is very helpful. This small museum was better laid out, and information more accessible than some much larger museums.
  • It is a beautiful museum, beautiful expositions, beautiful staff and beautiful building inside and outside. The archeology part is our favourite, easily the best we have ever seen. It is worth the € 6 they charge. More than that, the charge covers one more museum (the hunting museum) across the road located in a gorgeous park. Every first Sunday of the months museums in Senlis are free. The lunch break is from 1 to 2pm. Wonderful staff, and there is information in English. If you have a bulky bag, it should be left in a locker at the entrance. The museum is three floor, we spent one hour but we would gladly spend another hour should we not be in a hurry to catch bus to Paris. We will stop by again, when in Senlis.
