For art lovers this museum is well worth the 6 euro admission. It is not a spectacular, greatest hits- style collection but a solid review of the history of French art over the last 500 years.

The name "Beaux Art" may fool you into thinking that the beaux-arts school of art is all you will find in this lovely building. Although they certainly have a nice selection of those works, they also have contemporary, modern, avant-garde and even a few masters...More

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.
