Musée du Petit Palais | Avignon
The Musée du Petit Palais in Avignon is an art museum housing pieces dating from Antiquity to the Renaissance.
The museum is housed in a magnificent building, once the Archbishop’s palace, dating back to the 14th century and close to the Papal Palace in the historical center of Avignon.
The permanent collection of the museum is divided into three galleries: Italian Renaissance painting, “Avignon school” late-Gothic painting and Provençal sculpture.
The Italian collection is composed of over 300 pieces and includes works by Taddeo di Bartolo, Cecco di Pietro, Botticelli, Carlo Crivelli, Jacopo del Sellaio and Vittore Carpaccio, among others.
The Musée du Petit Palais organizes temporary exhibitions, conferences, guided tours and learning activities for adults, families and children.
At the museum, a library and a cafeteria with an outdoor terrace are available to the visitors.
