I completely agree with the positive reviews posted. My husband and I just returned from a trip to Normandy and Brittany and spent some time in Pont Aven. This museum is well organized, the entrance fee is reasonably priced and the audio guide is excellent.

There are two main exhibition spaces one for temporary shows and the other for the permanent collection. When we visited the temporary show was interesting but not outstanding. The permanent collection tries to link many of the artists who stayed in Pont Aven with Gauguin...More

I had expected more from this museum. It contains a nice collection of artists that have a link with Pont-Aven, but I missed some more work from Gauguin.

We visited the museum while spending the day in Pont Aven. The special exhibit on Modern Art in Brittany was outstanding and the permanent collection was also well worth the visit. Was highly impressed with the quality of this museum in such a small town.

Nearly everyone visiting Pont Aven is aware of the famous art colony here in the late 1800s to early 1900s. Few local museums demonstrate the quality, scope and intelligence of the exhibits housed in this well lit and well constructed venue. Whether you have a...More

Most people visiting the town have a passing interest in the historical art colony. The recently reopened art museum does a superb job of describing and illustrating the magnificent painting which were born or conceived here. Many museums are a hodgepodge of collections. This one...More
