Where do you start with a museum like this? Staggering collection of Eugene Boudoin's local paintings. But also some nice Renoir's and a handful of Monet's (although the Waterlilies is not on of the best). There are several areas of old masters from the old Le Havre art gallery, destroyed by bombing in September 1944, including some rather nice van... More

This is probably the top attraction in Le Havre, especially for art lovers. The museum is right on the harbor. The galleries are bright and attractive, and there are a number of notable paintings. (They say they have the largest collection of impressionist paintings in France after the Orsay.) It is definitely worth a visit.

The museum is well located opposite the Le Havre Plague. It contains wonderful pieces of art to enjoy especially those for Monet.

If you are using the Le Havre ferry it is worth planning to spend a couple of hours in this delightful gallery. Predominately but not exclusively it shows the work of 19th century artists working in northern France and shows that Monet and others weren't just fair weather artists but worked in uncomfortable and difficult environments too. I particularly liked... More

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.
