Monsieur TH was a son of Cherbourg, an artist, a teacher and a collector and when he did well for himself he sent a box of art to the town hall. They didn’t know who sent it or what to make of it but figured they could start a small gallery. Over the years the art kept coming and the gallery kept going and growing. It was a feast for the eyes and we enjoyed it immensely.

In itself, the museum is a lovely well-lit space; then, add pictures and sculptures from well known Old Masters (and more contemporary ones) - not too many, but enough - and you have a perfect location to escape the hubbub outside. A couple of Cranach's here, an intimate Fra Angelico there, a massive plaster head of Bonaparte, a Filippino Lippi, a Seurat.. The list could go on, but do go and see it for yourself, instead!

This difficult to find museum shares a building with the main library. It is modern and has many good exhibits. The paintings cover a wide range of genres and there are some excellent sculptures. The entrance fee of 5 euros seems expensive at first but once you get to the second floor the gallery is very large. The galleries are well laid out and explanations are clear both in English and French. Not all the paintings are translated into English, but they are still worth viewing. Some of the marine art is exceptional. Sadly the most modern exhibit, Cherbourg today, is not translated.

The Musée Thomas Henry is not on Quai Napoléon. It is now part of the Qasar complex about half a mile away. The official address is Esplanade de la Laïcité but I couldn't find that on a map. However just go to the Rue Vastel and you'll find it.

After struggling to find exactly where it was my visit was a delight. There are some fine paintings from the Renaissance up to the 20th century. An exhibition of the paintings of local artist (Valognes born) Félix Buhot was showing when I was there.

Small but very interesting art museum, with a much better quality of pictures than you would expect, thanks to a donation from a native of Cherbourg who went on to become an art dealer in Paris.

This art gallery was free when we visited. The staff were welcoming. The permanent exhibition features local artists, but there may also be a temporary exhibition to enjoy
