We visited this charming museum/house which exposed a collection of paintings, sketches and engravings by Charles Mozin who devoted much of his artistry to life at Trouville. His works, for a relatively unknown painter, are truly lovely and rival some of the great contemporaries of...More

Don't go here if you're expecting fantastic views (the glass panes are quite old/dusty) or original 19th century interiors (sadly those were removed). Do go here if you like history and/or old masters' paintings. This is a small and very cosy museum which features the...More

Located in the of the grand houses that have sweeping views this small art museum is quirky but worth the visit at 3 Euros!! The first floor contains three rooms dedicated to painters who have documented the lives of fishermen and sea farers, the top...More

And also a good way to learn local architecture and lifestyle of 18th century. Stunning view on the sea and a nice small garden to sit and relax or make some drawings if you paint.

We thought we'd get to see the villa itself...nope. 2 Euros gets you into the first two floors, there are a few art exhibitions...nice but nothing mind-blowing...The rooms themselves have been completely stripped of any original decor so there is nothing at all to look...More

I absolutely loved this Museum. It is a little walk from the town centre but I took the diddy train and the lovely driver on it stopped the train outside of the Museum (which he shouldn't really have done to help me). Small but interesting...More

Montebello Villa is typical of Second Empire seaside architecture. Built in 1865 by architect Jean-Louis Celinski for the Marquess of Montebello, it emulates 17th century castles. Located on a hill on the sea front, it provides a unique sight on the bay of the Seine...More

The villa where the museum is located is very pretty. Small collection of local significance. Nice and quiet place.
