Palais des Beaux-Arts de Lille
Take advantage of your stay at the Hotel Morphée to visit the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Lille
One of the richest museums in France
One of the essential things to do in Lille is to visit the Palais des Beaux-Arts, considered the second most important museum in France after the Louvre!
Renowned for its size and quality, this prestigious art collection is housed in an impressive building with a bright and spacious atrium.
The collection includes masterpieces of European painting by Rubens, Van Dyck, Goya and Delacroix. There are also wonderful examples of 19th century French painting, as well as Impressionist art, including Claude Monet's House of Parliament in London, and modern art such as Picasso's Olga in Fur Collar.
Other highlights are the collection of antiques and a sculpture gallery with pieces by Rodin and other artists. Lovers of military history will appreciate the 18th century relief maps of the fortified towns of northern France and Belgium (which were used by the kings of France during the wars).
