Musee des Beaux-Arts de Rouen, Rouen

(4.4/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Particularly interesting because its fine art collections represent every European school from the 15th to the 21st centuries, Musee des Beaux-Arts de Rouen was founded in 1801 by Napoléon I. The vast collection represents many periods and styles with objets d'art, paintings, and drawings. The lost statue, "Hercules Slaying the Hydra of Lerna" by Pierre Puget, is on view, as well as other notable sculptures like "Satyr and Nymph” by Théodore Géricault. An impressive donation of François Depeaux paintings placed the museum at the forefront for Impressionist and 19th-century paintings. Renowned pieces include "Rue Saint-Denis" by Monet, "Democritus" by Diego Velázquez, and "Christ at the Column" by Caravaggio.

  • Fewer people will not bother anyone, and looks good. It was great room collection of impressionists, including Monet's Cathedral and a temporary exhibition was doing last year.

  • Normandy is combined with its men, its cider and its architectural and artistic wealth.

  • A very nice place with a rich and interesting permanent collection. The Caravaggio, Delacroix, Monet, all the great names of painting are. In addition, temporary exhibitions are often very beautiful and unseen. Don't miss a visit to Rouen
