Musée d'art moderne André Malraux - MuMa Le Havre, Le Havre
(4.4/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
The impressionist painting collection at Musée d'art moderne André Malraux - MuMa Le Havre is the second most extensive in France, after that of the Orsay Museum in Paris. Facing the sea, this museum is a smooth, transparent assembly of glass and steel posed on a concrete pad. The large windows let in the highly variable light of the Normandy coast (carefully filtered to protect the art, of course)--a light that inspired many of the painters in the museum's collections. There are works by Claude Monet and other well-known artists, including Corot, Delacroix, Courbet, Degas, Manet, Renoir, Gauguin, Sisley, and Pissarro. The museum houses the largest collection of works by Eugène Boudin in the world. Modern art is also well represented here. Make Musée d'art moderne André Malraux - MuMa Le Havre a centerpiece of your Le Havre vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Le Havre itinerary maker.

  • Located near the coast and modern Museum of art. Never compared to museums in other cities, is bigger, but guests can enjoy 10 minutes. Overwhelmed by the cow collection of boudin, especially on the second floor to study number. With the name of the Museum of modern art, but there are also religious paintings of the 15th century. Also, very well stocked shop, assortment of art books that large bookshop par.... Very good restaurant on the second floor, atmosphere, building is very high quality service throughout.

  • What a joy to be able to admire Monet, Manet, Sysley, Boudin (a whole wall of his paintings on the Normandy cows), Renoir etc... Besides facing the sea. We didn't want to leave. In another register the Museum restaurant: excellent quality: price... RQ; the Museum does not open until 11: 00

  • This is a super museum with amazing choice of artists. I think because this is a walk from the centre of town not many people go there which is a shame as it definitely well worth a visit.

  • Excellent collection of impressionist art with some earlier periods lightly represented. Modern art beyond the impressionist era does not seem to be in the collection.
  • Great collection
  • Neither too big nor too small. A very nice Museum, not expensive (5 euro for adults) and offers a rich collection of paintings from different eras and different styles. There is something for everyone. Unfortunately I don't have the opportunity to see one of their temporary expo, so I don't know what they're worth, that's why I put that 4 stars. And for this and for the reception which was a little cold (not bad, bad or another, but a little remote...)
