This art gallery was free when we visited. The staff were welcoming. The permanent exhibition features local artists, but there may also be a temporary exhibition to enjoy

The Musée Thomas Henry is not on Quai Napoléon. It is now part of the Qasar complex about half a mile away. The official address is Esplanade de la Laïcité but I couldn't find that on a map. However just go to the Rue Vastel and you'll find it.

After struggling to find exactly where it was my visit was a delight. There are some fine paintings from the Renaissance up to the 20th century. An exhibition of the paintings of local artist (Valognes born) Félix Buhot was showing when I was there.

If you have the time when visiting Cherbourg this art gallery is well worth a visit. It was founded to display the (originally anonymous) donations from Thomas Henry and has grown over the years. An understated jewel!

This difficult to find museum shares a building with the main library. It is modern and has many good exhibits. The paintings cover a wide range of genres and there are some excellent sculptures. The entrance fee of 5 euros seems expensive at first but once you get to the second floor the gallery is very large. The galleries are well laid out and explanations are clear both in English and French. Not all the paintings are translated into English, but they are still worth viewing. Some of the marine art is exceptional. Sadly the most modern exhibit, Cherbourg today, is not translated.

Small but very interesting art museum, with a much better quality of pictures than you would expect, thanks to a donation from a native of Cherbourg who went on to become an art dealer in Paris.

Good museum with a good welcome
In addition, a museum that caters to the youngest with games for the museum, which is very fun.
In addition, a quality museum with paintings and bronzes

thank you

Very pretty museum where the works are displayed on 2 floors.
Very beautiful paintings by Jean François MILLET, notably the portraits of Pauline Ono.
Magnificent Virgin and Child by Ghirlandaio Domenico.
2 famous floral paintings by Van Aelst Willem Jansz
A magnificent marble statue of Marguerite with remarkably delicate details.
A very beautiful silver work from Maison CHRISTOPHLE deserves careful cleaning.
Located at the back of the Theater.
The staff is welcoming, very friendly and knows some anecdotes about certain works.
It’s a shame that the metal shutter of the store has still not been repaired because this prevents potential purchases.

Very well located museum, in the heart of the city, just behind the famous theater. Completely renovated: modern rooms, fluid route on two levels. Very rich collection, well presented. Exciting Millet Room. Very calm atmosphere, comfortable equipment and very friendly welcome.
