Beautiful small museum; very appropriate activity for a rainy Sunday in Rennes; approximately 2hrs visit; you can find art from old Egypt to sculptures and paintings of our century. Picasso, Rubens, Tanguy and Lacombe painters are present as well.

In reading the reviews I expected a very small collection. But you can easily spend 1-1/2-2 hours there. A few master paintings with lots of other interesting pieces.

This museum contains a varied collection of traditional pieces - many from Brittany - along with some more recent pieces (late 19th century) and some very recent modern pieces. The entry price is good value and provides some interesting entertainment for an hour or so....More

Very average. Only worth the effort if you happen to be passing by. The permanent collection has a few good modern pieces and some 20th Century art that is notable, but that is about it.

The regular exhibits were very nice with a mixture of paintings and sculpture in a handsome building. We also enjoyed the special exhibit on Thomas Huber.

Not exactly and easy layout, but as you wander around you do encounter some really great art - both historic and modern. And it's not too busy so you can close to the pictures.

If you have enough time, not to be missed. Quite a good collection of Egyptian art, renaissance, baroque, among others, and an interesting collection of Impressionism and other avantgardes of the beginning of the XXth century related to Bretagne. We had a very nice time...More

There is a wide range of art and artifacts that are well presented. Some areas are kept cool and have automatic doors to keep it that way. It was a hot day and some areas were a bit warm but we did not find it...More

It was hot outside and even hotter inside. Nobody asked us for money so just wandered in. There is a big variety of art so you should find something you like if you go on a cooler day.
