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 went to Le Havre to see the port and this museum. This musem has local painters as well as famous ones like, Monet etc. This museum is very nice and is a must if you go to Le Havre.

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.

I adore going to museums, but most of them – particularly the larger ones – make me tired. Not so this one. It has some gorgeous paintings, but not an overwhelming amount. The Dufy and Boudin collections are outstanding. Most of the paintings offered the viewer an exceptional impression of Le Havre and environs. The entire wall of Boudin paintings... More

included his last paintings done from an attic window above the Le Havre port; from different angles and in varied weather. Can read French myself but the accompanying text wasn't translated into English, unlike the Rouen exhibition.

we spent 4 hours walking through this excellent museum mid September. We arrived in Le Havre on a very dreary day indeed but this was certainly worth it. To see these old masters and the huge choice of painters was exquisite. Must say that having read some of the other reviews about the restaurant, I am glad we walked 10... More

A wide selection of mainly impressionist art mainly from the Normandy region very well displayed. Service in the restaurant was very slow, food average and price high for what you get. Don't eat there.
