France Travel Planner by Tom Brosnahan & Jane Fisher   Musée des Beaux-Arts, Caen, France
Just inside the Château de Caen, a modern building houses the fine arts museum.




The Musée des Beaux-Arts, or Fine Arts Museum, is on the grounds of the Château de Caen, allowing the visitor to experience both the château-fort and beautiful art.

The permanent collection is known for its 16th and 17th century European paintings, particularly by French, Italian, and Dutch masters.

It also includes works from the 18th century and later. Special exhibitions may feature modern artists.
