Museum of Modern Art André Malraux – MUMA

Le Havre has nurtured artists like Monet, Dubuffet, Friesz, Dufy and Braque. And MuMa (Musée d’art moderne André Malraux) is a pillar of the city’s art history. MuMa is known for its late-19th and 20th-century collections. From the Impressionists to the Fauves, the museum’s collections is today one of France’s largest, and the public can now enjoy works by Renoir, Pissarro, Sisley, Degas, Courbet and Corot.
