We visited the Museum because it was pouring with rain and we like Art and photography. Some of the regular art display is well worth seeing and the special exhibition by the photographer Jaqueline Salmon sounded interesting. Sadly, we were frustrated by this because we could not really see what she was trying to achieve apart from experiment. The first... More

This is a super museum with amazing choice of artists. I think because this is a walk from the centre of town not many people go there which is a shame as it definitely well worth a visit.

Amazing tarte au citron in the café, good shop with arty educational toys for kids, that would make good presents. The paintings are fab of course. It's not all about eating and shopping! Raoul Dufy was born in Le Havre so they have quite a few of his paintings, and there is a huge collection of Boudin, since he lived... More

Excellent collection viewable up-close without crowds, without guards peering at you, we felt as if we were in someone's private home. Nominal admission, small gift shop, complimentary backpack check room. We walked there from the cruise port shuttle drop-off at the Volcano; delighted we ignored the ship's museum expert tell us "all the museums in LeHavre are closed on Mondays":... More

Enjoyed the experience. But only the paintings. The building and the halls are not fit to the brilliant pictures.

We were so surprised by this museum. We really did not expect to find a collection of this quality in Le Havre. Unfortunately we had just missed a Boudin exhibition but their permanent collection is wonderful. There is a whole wall of paintings of cows by Boudin, also some lovely, Renoirs, a gorgeous Matisse, Manet, Pisarro, Monet - it really... More

My experience of the gallery centred on the works of Boudin because there is a large exhibition on display at the time of my visit. Upstairs were fine things including an endless supply of Boudin cows but other superb things too. Worth a visit of a couple of hours or so.

We usually would not visit an art gallery on vacation but this one was amazing and we spent more time there then i would have thought. This place is incredible and they have done a great job with the displays.

We were so pleasantly surprised by this gem. It's definitely worth a visit if you're in Le Havre or even close. An incredible impressionist collection

It's relatively small compared to its Parisian equivalents, but the museum has a lovely collection of impressionist paintings with a special focus on Boudin, who was born in the area.
