I went to see the temporary exhibition on Renaissance Sienese art which was outstanding but the permanent collection too was really impressive. In a single room you have masterpieces by Caravaggio, Rubens and Veronese, and there is a very fine group of Impressionists (including several Sisleys). On the Saturday morning I went there were barely enough visitors to make up... More

Much to my surprise and disappointment there was only ONE Monet painting g of the Rouen Cathedral! A few good Sisley's but altogether a rather thin offering after seeing so many at Courtauld's gallery in London, probably the worlds best collection of impressionists. Cie la vie...

Nice art collection and great visiting exhibits. Came here to see the Siena exhibit. The exhibit was outstanding. The layout of the museum was easy to follow, well lit and made viewing the art easy. Note that the restroom facilities were pretty awful. 2 stalls in the ladies room, one was locked shut - I guess it was broken. The... More

I spent about an hour in this institution on a day trip to Rouen, and found it easy to explore, attractively appointed, and with a decent if not brilliant collection. Highlights for me included one of Monet's views of the cathedral - a small museum such as this one cannot compete with the big guns - the Louvre has three... More

This museum is well worth a visit, as there are a number of exquisite paintings! A wonderful Caravaggio that is not to be missed, plus many Monet paintings, along with other major French painters. A nice tour that winds you through a good selection of works. I wouldn't miss this while visiting Rouen!

This museum won't knock your socks off, but it is a pleasant experience to visit there and get a flavor of this ancient city. Rouen itself should not be missed -- it is rich in history and utterly charming.

Fine building and a few gems. See the Duchamps box just beside the shop. Lots of rooms of dreary early 19th century art but you can speed through that if it's not your thing. Current (April 2015) expo of Renaissance art of Sienna is great. Definitely worth doing if you have a couple of days in Rouen.

Friendly and charming staff in this beautiful museum of iron and metal works. We had a lot of fun using our pigeon French to work out some of the more lugubrious exhibits but there were useful and scary illustrations that made even our explanations quite tame. We would really recommend this gem.

A good collection with some wonderful Impressionist and Cubist pieces. Museum has a stylish courtyard café. Great value at 5 Euros.

Monday 7th July 2014. Truly a wonderful exhibition of classical, renaissance and impressionist art interspersed with large fine sculptural wonders. Whatever you do in Rouen be sure to visit the Musee des Beaux-Arts. Having spent two hours in the equivalent museum in Lyon in 2013 this experience makes me realise that one should search out provincial museums for their works... More
