Small museum that has really been refurbished. Worth a short visit - We were there about an hour. No spectacular paintings but a reasonable small collection for cost of ticket. No significant work by Gaugin although he is central figure to the exhibition. Quite a...More

This small and interesting museum gives you a good idea of the few years when Gauguin and the other less known painters were spending a lot of their time on Pont Aven. You can better understand how the artists lived at that time, how they...More

We visited the museum in the last few days of a temporary exhibition and were so impressed we stayed for several hours and will need to go back to view the permanent one!

As the museum is on the small side, it is easily doable in about 90 minutes. Special exhibits very nicely curated, though most of the descriptions are in French. Friendly staff.

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.
