  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Small nice museum visit in case of bad weather. It's not the louvre, but cest quiet and relaxing. The staff is very friendly.
