At the permanent exhibition, western art works of the late medieval to early 20th century are on display. The core of the exhibition is French art, for example the paintings of the Impressionists and sculptures of Rodin.

"The Gates of Hell," which is an art work of the sculptor Auguste Rodin whom succeeded from the 19th to 20th century, is on display at the forecourt of the art museum. In this over five meters high bronze statue, various masterpieces of Rodin, such as "The Thinker," are incorporated.
