Very average. Only worth the effort if you happen to be passing by. The permanent collection has a few good modern pieces and some 20th Century art that is notable, but that is about it.

Really interesting visit to see the exhibition of Thomas Huber artwork. Fine way to spend a rainy day. Cloak room is free

The regular exhibits were very nice with a mixture of paintings and sculpture in a handsome building. We also enjoyed the special exhibit on Thomas Huber.

Not exactly and easy layout, but as you wander around you do encounter some really great art - both historic and modern. And it's not too busy so you can close to the pictures.

If you have enough time, not to be missed. Quite a good collection of Egyptian art, renaissance, baroque, among others, and an interesting collection of Impressionism and other avantgardes of the beginning of the XXth century related to Bretagne. We had a very nice time...More

There is a wide range of art and artifacts that are well presented. Some areas are kept cool and have automatic doors to keep it that way. It was a hot day and some areas were a bit warm but we did not find it...More

It was hot outside and even hotter inside. Nobody asked us for money so just wandered in. There is a big variety of art so you should find something you like if you go on a cooler day.

Great entry price-€5 and under 18's free. Plenty to see to suit all tastes. Staff friendly enough and not too busy with plenty of places to sit down as you walk around if you wish

Visited on a Tuesday afternoon. Just €5 and free to students ( my daughter had no promo but still let her in for free) variety of ages of art and some very diverse pieces. Lots of French school children of various ages.

Visited the Musee des Beaux Arts in Rouen which was superb so this was a real let down. Weak collection and the special exhibit a mere room or so.
