Many Impressionists and other painters flocked to Honfleur in the 19th century, captivated by its light and water. You can see their works, including some by Monet, Courbet, Dufy, and Dubourg, in this handsome museum set in the former chapel of an Augustinian convent. But the star of the museum is Honfelur’s native son, Eugène Boudin, whose pastels and paintings form part of an extensive permanent collection. In addition to local photographs (snapped between 1880–1920), Norman tourism posters, and antiques, the museum features a regularly changing roster of temporary exhibitions.
