The collection of impressionists' art works in this museum is so amazing. Thanksfully, it was not crowded and we could view the masterpieces easily. This is a "do not miss" especially for art lovers.

An amazing art gallery - far larger than we expected. Not all of the paintings on display were to our taste, but that is to be expected. We loved the impressionists, particularly Monet.

Spectacular building with pleasant and helpful staff. It is free to visit the non-exhibition areas but you need to get a ticket from the ticket desk on the right as you enter. Lots of darker older style art but only one or two modern pieces...More

I was referred to this museum by the Tourism Office and wasn't disappointed. The entrance is free except for the Marcel Duchamp Exhibition. Little did I know that Monet's major works are here and so are other Impressionists. I was happy to see Delacroix's works...More

The museum is probably best know for its impressionist especially Monet, but use the time to look at other parts of the museum. What really caught my eye was "Democritus" by Diego Velázquez. A painting full of humour and warmth.

We visited Rouen on a Tuesday and found that like all National Museums in France, the Musee des Beaux- Arts was not open that day of the week, although free the rest of the week. This required another difficult city drive into a heavy construction...More

I would not describe myself as an art type person, but I really enjoyed walking the halls of this fine museum, as did my whole family. To do the place justice you probably need to plan the whole day in the place, we stayed for...More

Lots of good stuff, with outstanding impressionist collection. You forget just how lively and brisk it can be, not just pretty. There's a guy in a bar not unlike a Lautrec. Lots of ocean, boats. I didn't know a lot of Impressionists came from and/or...More

I don't believe they have this painting in Rouen. There are only two Monet's (that I remember) both images of Notre Dame and they are both later works. I don't remember seeing this specific painting while I was there. I hope... More
