There is a sensational exhibition on now featuring Serusier who was a famous artist painting in Pont Aven. The permanent exhibition is good but not as extensive or well curated as this temporary exhibit.

We went in and enjoyed the permanent collection more that the temporary exhibits. The museum was modern. One nice touch was the ability to borrow portable chairs to take around.

Small museum that has really been refurbished. Worth a short visit - We were there about an hour. No spectacular paintings but a reasonable small collection for cost of ticket. No significant work by Gaugin although he is central figure to the exhibition. Quite a...More

We had heard the museum was worth the visit after a complete revamping two years ago , thus we arrived with high expectations to visit the permanent exhibition. True the place has been modernized , but still suffers from various shortcomings . The building is...More
