The Fabre Museum is the largest art museum in Montpellier. It is created as a result of a proposal in 1824 by Baron François-Xavier Fabre (1766-1837), painter and collector, to donate to the city of his collections, provided they are at the origin of a museum.

The museum was installed in the hotel Massilian, mansion of the eighteenth century, located east of the crest, the historic center of Montpellier, overlooking the Esplanade, close to the Place de la Comedie .
