At the entrance to Le Havre harbour and near the harbour master's office, in a contemporary building where light and space reign supreme, stands the André Malraux Museum of Modern Art.
In the city rebuilt by the architect Auguste Perret, the museum which was inaugurated in 1961 by André Malraux, Minister of Culture at the time, and restructured between 1995 and 1999, has one of France's most extensive Impressionist collections, including works by Renoir, Monet, Pissarro, Sisley, Degas, Boudin and more.
Its architecture, a masterpiece of modernity, is emphasised by a monumental sculpture, Le Signal by Henri Georges Adam, which stands proudly on the museum forecourt.
The MuMa offers a tour of 14 unmissable exhibits (works by Van Dongen, Dubuffet, Vallotton, Renoir, Manet, Monet, Degas, etc.), paintings from the 15th to the 20th century, collections of sculptures, photographs and graphic arts, as well as a young visitors' trail and themed walks, not forgetting temporary exhibitions and special events.
