Wonderful small, uncrowded museum with several very good Monets, including the cathedral façade, and a nice impressionist section. Should not be missed.

Spent an afternoon here. Well worth the visit. A wide variety of art spanning the centuries. The Impressionist art is excellent featuring such artists as Sisley, Monet and Manet. There is a lovely courtyard café and an excellent bookshop.

We could go back in the afternoon but as we were doing other things we could not do that . When we asked if we could use them... More

Lovely museum. We enjoyed the Cathedrals exhibit. The only downside to this was the first floor was closed for half the day when we went. Make sure to check the times before you go!

Really well laid out gallery and easy to move through. We were really impressed that we were able to spend an hour here with our little boy, who was so well behaved. Even though he made several loud noises on occasion we were never made to feel unwelcomed or told to keep quiet. It has some awesome works, Monet was... More

What a great collection. What a great museum. When we visited, in also had an exhibition on - a look at cathedrals through the ages. I believe it's there until the end of September - it's definitely worth a visit.

I stopped here only because I was visiting Rouen for the Cathedral, and had some time to burn. But this turned out to be the real high-light of my day. Caravaggio's "Christ at the Column" & Velasquez's "Democritus" are absolute must-see's - and the whole collection is of way higher quality than you would expect in a provincial museum.

Being the largest museum in town, a visit to Musée des Beaux Arts will keep you busy for at least a couple of hours, provided that you're interested in classical and modern painting. The classical paintings are the mainstay; the museum has halls dedicated to artworks from the15-17th century, the 18th century, the 19th century (the mainstay of the museum,... More

Nice sized collection to see in a visit since it is not such a huge museum. But you do not get to see the Monet painting of Notre Dame cathedral in the permanent collection. You had to pay extra for the cathedral exhibit. You hear about the painting all over town, and then they charge extra? Seemed to be a... More
