This is a relatively small museum, but an interesting one. The exhibit on Max Jacob is especially well done and alone worth the admission fee. The morning we went, there were three separate field trips there for school kids. Watching the excitement of these children...More

We hadn't expected such a wide range of different styles and areas. I loved the French impressionist paintings upstairs and was amazed to find a copy of Mona Lisa there

As before, the permanent collection is breath-taking, works by Breton artists and on Breton themes, including Gaugin and Pont-Aven cronies.

This rather interesting gallery with traditional stone architecture outside and a modern multi function layout inside is worth a visit. A word of warning it closes at noon. We were firmly shown the way out and missed seeing a room. The moderate charge is acceptable...More
