Everyone who loves art, Babar, or children will love Babar's Gallery. The old train station in Celesteville stands empty - should it be torn down? 'No!' declare Celeste and Babar, who decide to turn it into an art museum. Their children (like many young museum-goers) have a lot of questions about art: 'Does it have to be pretty? Does it have to be old? Does it have to make sense?' Celeste's patient answers explain the basic ideas of art appreciation. Babar and Celeste's generous donations to the new museum include witty and striking elephant-inspired versions of Michelangelo's Creation of Man, Georges Seurat's Sunday on La Grande Jatte, and Botticelli's Birth of Venus, along with many other celebrated paintings. Children and adults will want to visit Babar's Gallery again and again!
