  • In Saint-Brieuc, the museum of art and history focuses on the history and folk traditions of the region, but still makes room for contemporary art.

    In the town centre, the Saint-Brieuc museum of history and art lets you discover the true character of the Côtes d'Armor up to the early 20th century. Visit both buildings, one housing temporary exhibitions, and another, whose permanent galleries are dedicated to the history of folk art and tradition, with numerous everyday objects, models, paintings, films etc. On the ground floor, learn about the region, as seen through the eyes of landscape painters, and the traditions of the local fishing and maritime activities. On the first floor, understand how the moors were cleared, leaving way for a landscape that evolved along with an expanding textile industry. The second floor is consecrated to social and religious life, the rural environment and the arrival of tourism. In the temporary exhibition pavilion, move back to today with the regular contemporary art exhibitions.
