This is a smallish collection of average artwork. There are a few, less known pieces, by masters but overall the collection is just ok. There is a very small ancient artefacts collection also. By no means a must see.

We stayed at the museum for 11/2 hour. We were not very much impressed by the collection. Although there were some works from impresionists that were relay nice to see. The temporary presentation was nice, but because of the lack of English information it was...More

The building itself is worth seeing plus the interesting display of arts. Definitely worth spending an hour checking out.

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.
