Pont Aven school has got its own museum
May 2021
The museum is located in the center of Pont Aven, not easy to miss it. It contains some good background information on the Pont-Aven painting school but the number of paintings that can be attributed to this group of painters is limited.

What is very good however is the emphasis on the international character of this Pont Aven school.
There is a good museum shop as well.

Interesting museum about the Pont-Aven painting school
Jul 2020
Interesting museum. Well places in the village. Beautilful building architecture. Don't expect the most famous paintings of course, but well interesting and some beautiful pieces. If you are French speaking, don't miss the family activities (see website).

Excellent museum
Nov 2019
The museum is on four floors and each floor has a great deal to see. It provides very good information on the history of the artists who painted in the town.

A Must See

If you want to understand the history of this village and the impact impressionist art had on it you have to come here. No it's not huge, it doesnt have many great pieces (only 1 Gaugain) but it puts the movement and a few of the artists in prospective. Thoroughly enjoyed our time here.

Small and exciting museum

A wonderful vivid surprise, beautiful paintings from variety of painters. Nice “story behind” of Pont-Aven location and history. Short 30-40 minutes with lots of fascinating paintings.
Worth a special trip to see it

Coming here will help you understand even more why so many artists were attracted and inspired by Pont Aven. Here you can see their works.

Nice and superb museum
Jul 2019 • Solo
On two Flores you can watch a fine collection of masterpieces of the are appr1880 to 1910. 2nd floor has commonly changing exhibitions. Especially for a small break it’s worth grabbing an audio system and stroll thru the museum.

Very nice museum

There are a lot of paintings in this museum. Even a few paintings from Gaughin. We were very pleasantly surprised considering the entry was only 5 euros.

Fabulous Serusier exhibition
Oct 2018
There is a sensational exhibition on now featuring Serusier who was a famous artist painting in Pont Aven. The permanent exhibition is good but not as extensive or well curated as this temporary exhibit.

Nice small museum
Sep 2018 • Couples
We went in and enjoyed the permanent collection more that the temporary exhibits. The museum was modern. One nice touch was the ability to borrow portable chairs to take around.
