Situated at the entrance of the port and facing the sea, the gallery, built of glass and steel from 1952 to 1961, is light and airy thanks to its immense windows. The spacious rooms are arranged over two floors. Its main attraction is the extensive collection of impressionist paintings by Manet, Monet, Boudin, Renoir, Sisley, Pissarro. Other 19th century pre... More

The views from the museum are beautiful and ever changing. The Nicolas de Staël exhibition was amazing and very well presented. Finally an abstract style I can appreciate. Very bright and pleasant building.

The perfect museum to show the beautiful paintings of this amazing Russian-Belgian painter! His Northsea skies are as a mirror to the sky outside! It's a temporary exposition , so hurry up! Not speaking of the building himself!

I came for a temporary exposition (de Stael), which was worthy of a Paris exhibition, but the permanent collection is also surprisingly good. The museum has an excellent restaurant with a view to the port, but reservations are highly recommended.

We're a bit concerned visiting this place with 6-year old boy, knowing that this is biggest modernism paintings collection in France outside Paris. We thought we would be stuck there for ages and our child would be bored to death. How wrong we were! Great gallery, superbly modern building inside and out. Great layout allowing you to plan your journey... More

This is a small, well chosen and well-presented collection. There are some delights here, including a range of Dufys over his whole career and quite the most wonderful Renoir you will ever see.

After years of ignoring Le Havre as we rushed from the dock to our holiday destination, recently news of this museum took as back to this underestimated town. Even on a wet Normandy day, the Muma museum is a delight. Overlooking the harbour inside it is spacious, well lit and stuffed full of amazing art. Big fans of Raoul Dufy... More

This is a medium sized modern art museum on the sea front at the concrete city of La Havre. Good variety of the usual masters, with some surprising originals. We were confronted with several staff smoking right outside the main entrance, not the most welcoming greeting. worth a couple of hours, if in the area.
