  • Exhibition on the bridge of Recouvrance containing much information on the history of Brest. We can also know the works of the artist Clet Abraham, famous for its artistic signs modified. The big surprise was to see Canaletto in that Museum.

  • Temporary exhibition on the turntable to see, very interesting, we learn many things... Expo paintings focused on the sea, pretty enough, a few paintings by masters, some sculptures... The Museum very pleasant staff

  • A beautiful collection of older and newer paintings, but a narrow, old-fashioned place that does not respond to what is expected of a modern Museum. What a pity!

  • the staff was friendly. the tour however was extremely short and not necessarily interesting (and yet I am open minded and always looking for the positives) but €5 for less than 15 minutes of tour seems a bit limited. Nevertheless, I advise the Museum for less than 25 years old (free). Good visit!
