  • We had about an hour to kill with small kids and this was great, can say the kids loved it but we didn't stay long, a nice mix, and interesting historical section of the local bridge.  more »
  • We were lucky to see the Perron exhibition which was very cool, 20th C artist and a Brestois of some note. Some amazing impressionist stuff too. No glass no wires art gallery old style  more »

  • Nice but without originality or works extremely powerful Museum.

  • This museum is really tiny. Some nice works in the first pieces that show the city of Brest and the surrounding area in the past

  • 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!

  • I had the opportunity to visit the Museum on the day of the heritage. A very nice visit. Very nice pictures of the old Brest!
