Overview

The first thing you notice about the Musée d'art moderne André Malraux-MuMa Le Havre is its breathtaking coastal setting. As you approach the spacious, light-filled museum building, Henri-Georges Adam's monumental concrete sculpture The Signal heightens the experience, framing a slice of the maritime landscape that inspired many of the works in the museum's collections. Le Havre has nurtured artists like Monet, Dubuffet, Friesz, Dufy and Braque. And MuMa is a pillar of the city's art history. Inaugurated in 1961 by André Malraux, then France's Minister of Cultural Affairs, MuMa is known for its late-19th and 20th-century collections. From the Impressionists to the Fauves, the museum's collections have been enriched by gifts such as works from the studio of Eugène Boudin and the Marande donation. More recently, Hélène Senn-Foulds donated an impressive collection built up by her grandfather, Olivier Senn, in the early 20th century. Thanks to the donation, MuMa's collection of Impressionist works is today one of France's largest, and the public can now enjoy works by Renoir, Pissarro, Sisley, Degas, Courbet and Corot.

This is a lovely museum overlooking the harbor, and it’s no surprise that much of the collection is dedicated to harbor/water/ocean scenes. It’s bright & airy, very relaxing. I enjoyed both a special exhibit (Né en écumes) and the permanent collection, which includes numerous Renoir,...More

Highly interesting collection easy to visit. Présentation Boudin paintings à little too closely grouped but otherwise all interesting, staff helpful and entrance fee unpretentious!

What I would have missed. The last "modern" art gallery that I visited was the Tate St. Ives in Cornwall which was full of what can only be sadly described as drivel, this gallery by contrast is an absolute joy to visit. It was the...More
