The museum, named after French neoclassical painter François-Xavier Fabre, is housed inside the Hôtel de Massillian, an early 19th century building completely renovated in 2007.

The permanent collection of the Fabre Museum is divided into main 4 sections: Old Masters (painting from the 15th to the 19th century), Modern Movements (painting from the 20th century to present day), Decorative Arts and Graphic Arts.
The museum displays works by French and International artists, such as Pieter Breughel the Younger and Jan Breughel the Elder, Rubens, Ter Borch, Steen, Van Ostade, Palma the Younger, Veronese, Domenichino, Poussin, Guercino, Bernini, Zurbaran, Guardi, Delacroix, Géricault, Courbet, Bazille, Manet, Dufy, Delaunay and Nathalia Gontcharova; the drawing collection also includes some notable works by Raphael.
