  • Do not come to Quimper without a visit to this wonderful Museum. Paintings of different time and different places, but especially Breton painting, and Max Jacob Hall, very interesting. Temporary exhibitions are always superb, and you can also admire the Mona Lisa. The premises are pleasant and well highlight the works. Essential.
