Currently closed for renovation, but opens again on 1 May. From the write up it's worth a visit, but unfortunately we didn't get the chance on this occasion.

A rich collection of Pre-Impressionist and contemporary painting and drawings In the town where the impressionists loved to come to paint. I hope to return to Honfleur.

Eugene Boudin is one of my favorite artists from the 18th century. He first gained notoriety as a sea scape or painter of the sea. He befriended another painter who was quite young at the time, Claude Monet. Monet learned to use bright colors and was influenced by Boudin to paint outdoors. en plein air painting is the art painting... More

We did not know Eugene Boudin but discovered his early or pre-Impressionism and his relationships with other artists of his time. He loved Honfleur.

This museum is worth a visit if you love art and Impressionism. There are a good variety of pieces and they tell an interesting story of the move from Romanticism to Impressionism. It is well worth a visit, plan on about an hour to hour and a half visit.

Art galleries can be a bit stuffy and aloof, but this museum, as they call it, is somehow made more lively, fascinating and far more interesting than most. Philistine that I am and having never heard of this bloke, it was a revelation indeed. Worth a visit.

Eugene Boudin should be better known, especially by those who love Claude Monet since Boudin was his mentor. In many paintings you see the beginning of the techniques that would create the dappled light of Impressionism .

What a delightful museum this turned out to be! You get n audio headset that is controlled by infra-red, so that you can go to different parts of each exhibit and hear different things. Even if you don't recognize the composers name, you will be enthralled and delighted by this little gem, I know I was!!

We were sightseeing in Honfleur and it was a very rainy afternoon. I must admit it was the weather more than any interest in this landscape painter, that drove me inside to check out the collection, which includes other painters from the area and time period, as well. I am glad I did visit this museum. Don't forget to check... More
