10000 items covering mostly paintings, sculptures and prints explore Brest’s maritime character. This museum is thus very intimately connected to the city. Check out the unique art library too. There are a lot of period French and Italian paintings, works from the Northern school, with an emphasis on Breton and Pont-Aven School art. There are also collections of old and ancient art. This backward looking character of the museum stems from a tragic loss – the WWII bombings destroyed a lot of the museum’s art heritage.

  • First floors – panoramic paintings; Italian and French; Classical and Baroque.
  • Ground floor – mostly 19th century paintings; Romanticism and Surrealism.

  • A small museum (would take approx 2 hrs to complete). My two children (aged 6 and 9) brought their sketch books and pencils to sketch their favourite sculpture. A lovely and peaceful 45 minutes was spent before catching the boat to Le Fret.

  • Ce musée est petit mais petite balade sympa à faire en famille ou seul.. . Quelques œuvres sympas dans les premières pièces qui montrent la ville de Brest et les environs autrefois... Accueil chaleureux. Parking juste à côté facile d accès... Il ne pas s attendre à passer l après-midi ça passe très vite....

  • Du personnel agréable et aimant partage leurs connaissances. A faire même avec les enfants durant les animations familles qui permet aux plus jeunes de s'approprier les oeuvres 🙂

  • Très bel endroit

  • Un lieu hors du temps où il fait bon déambuler
