In the early nineteenth century the museum was an ancient building called the Maison Carree, there was ancient and more recent paintings works. In the early twentieth it became too small, a new museum was then built a few hundred meters between Nimes Arena and the railway station. This new and beautiful building became the current Musée des Beaux-Arts de Nîmes.
