The Museum of modern art André Malraux opened in 1845. It is Le Havre’s first museum and belongs to the second generation of museums established in France in the 19th century.
The first major museum to be built in France after the Second World War, the MuMa building, which stands out for its light, transparent look and feel, is a masterpiece of modern architecture.
The museum presents a collection spanning over the 15th to 20th centuries. Modern painting comprises the majority of the collection, making MuMa one of the leading museums in France for the 1850-1920 period, and particularly Impressionist art.
MuMa possesses the largest collection of artworks by Eugène Boudin held at any public institution. Their display captures the essence of the work of this painter, who was Claude Monet’s first master.
