    The Museum is located in the heart of the city; It is a must if you want to discover the Breton painting. You can walk there quietly.

    Plan two trips if you are into Breton history through the artists eye. Fantastic exhibitions and well curated spaces.

    Beautiful party on the Flemish, but disappointing painters on the bridge Aven painters (1 single Heroised), which is a shame for a Museum of Finistère.

    Very rich permanent collections and temporary collections are often very interesting also. A place of culture cannot be ignored if we visit Quimper
