Housed in what was formerly an 18th-century private home, the Musée Calvet is Avignon’s top fine art museum. Native son Esprit Calvet bequeathed to the city upon his death a lifetime’s worth of acquired art, including works by Verne, David, Corot, Manet, and Soutine, plus a collection of ancient silverware. Recent additions include a garden wing dedicated to local archaeology.
