This, in my opinion, is a better museum than the Louvre. It has more art that is important, or at least more well-known to the general public. There are multiple works by artists such as Monet, Cezanne, Van Gogh, Lautrec, Gaugin, and others. The museum used to be a train station. There is a restaurant inside that is good for a small meal as big meals there are expensive.
