Musee Des Beaux-arts De Caen Reviews & Ratings
Reserve a few hours for the visit. You'll be impressed by some of the paintings they have there.
Great collection and very well displayed
Great collection, very diverse
Enjoyable museum, though I'm not overly interested in 16th/17th century paintings. Nevertheless they had some interesting paintings. Most of all i liked the temporarily exposition about cubism, even though it took some time to find it.
