What to see in France

Malraux Museum, Le Havre


Inaugurated in 1961 by the eponymous writer and Minister of Culture at the time, the André Malraux Museum of Modern Art symbolises culture and the future. It was first totally destroyed by the bombings of the Second World War, while the paintings were evacuated and spared.

Visit the Malraux museum during your camping holiday

Located at the entrance to the port in the city of Le Havre in Normandy, the MuMa is the first museum-cum-culture house in France, and the most modern in Europe, with its futuristic architecture crowned by Henri-Georges Adam's sculpture, "An eye turned towards the future". It is a museum of paintings that presents ancient (16th century) and contemporary works as well as particularly rich collections on Impressionism. Designed by four architects and four engineers, the building is bathed in light thanks to its five glass sides. The light is natural and changes according to the time of day, the season or the weather, and several painters have drawn inspiration from it in their works, which are on display in the museum.
