What travelers say:

I have to admit: my experience in art museums is not very extensive. Okay, so it didn't exist before, except for being with a friend who dragged me to this place, I didn't have much expectations for this trip. :>But...her instinct is right. Barnes is an art gallery where even an "ordinary person" can get a lot in a few hours of wandering. The layout and display made things much more interesting than I thought. It made me feel that not only did I have a good time, but that what I learned in that afternoon was more semester than what I learned in the entire two universities Art class! I can't compare with others, but it's hard to imagine any place better than Barnes!

    Amazing art in the gardens and museum

    We looked up places to visit and enjoyed going round the museum especially the film of William Kentridge which is very powerful. The sculptures in the garden are amazing and it’s free entry.
