  • Museum to visit alone or with family. It keeps nuggets (Rubens, Lebrun, etc.). Count 2 - 3 hour tour. I recommend.

  • I wasn't expecting to see such diversity of works. Price very attractive, duration of the tour about 2 hours to contemplate without moderation!

  • like many of these museums in the province, it holds true masterpiece through politics of filing of the Louvre, acquisitions and donations, especially the first: the stunning designs Robien (from da Vinci to Bonnard). Don't miss absolutely the masterpieces of Veronese, La Tour (newborn), Baugin (cup of well known apricots), (the Tiger Hunt) Rubens, Jordaens (the Deposition, a recently restored must), Chardin, Sisley, Caillebotte, Sérusier (very famous cylinder of gold but also his masterpiece: Solitude), Lacombe (the wave very often cited to illustrate the japonism) not to mention a very representative sample of modern... paintings that you will be surprised to find there while you often see them in reproduction, and you'll have all the time to quietly watch in silence unlike the unbearable atmosphere of the Louvre or Orsay.

  • Take your time and admire the art
  • Nice place, worth to visit.
  • It is the best Arts Museum in Bretagne Region, France.
  • Very nice Museum. A permanent exhibition of qualities, and also very relevant exhibitions (Traquandi exposure on the patio: beautiful). Nevertheless, the archaeological collections are somewhat anecdotal and dull next to the other rooms.

  • What to say... A must for the curious and art lovers! My mother there took me already when I was little... Good memories!
