Very nice and well maintained museum, of course the exhibition isn't enormous but definitely worth a visit. The light for photos inside was awesome ?

Great museum, went three times during my studies in Bordeaux. Each time I went, there were always new pieces. Never too crowded. Friendly helpful staff. Titles of pieces in French and English.

We visited the museum with CityPass. 1h30 is enough to walk around and the garden is nice to stay a bit longer in sunny days.

Nice small museum of fine arts. I visited the modern section and it was a lovely size, with a decent collection of modern art including photography, sculpture and paintings. The grounds are delightful so bring a sandwich if you have time and relax on your visit. Audio guide available for 2.5 euro

This museum has a lovely garden and a fantastic collection of fine arts. I'd definitely recommend stopping by. Although you can find a lot of the art on display online nothing beats seeing it in person.

Danmark Church

The first written record of church in Danmark locality date back to the year 1291. Close to the church are several stones with a Christian text and cross inscribed. The oldest parts of the present red-brick church are from the 1300s. In the late 1400s the church was enlarged to the appearance it has today. The church has been modified both internally and externally several times, among other things after the fires in 1699 and 1889. There are lot of well-preserved mural paintings in the walls.
