Musée d’Art
Moderne André

Despite its transparency contrasting with the surrounding architecture, MuMa – André Malraux modern art museum – was designed by an active member of Atelier Perret, Guy Lagneau. Firmly anchored facing the sea, the building features smooth, translucent surfaces, its glass parallelepiped assembly supported by a metal structure and protected from the light by the aluminum blades of a louvered screen. The interior is entirely modular and housed the first Maison de la Culture inaugurated by André Malraux in 1961. After 1967, it was given a new function, reaching beyond its role as a fine arts museum.

The Beaudouin architectural agency gave it a complete overall in 1999. Muma is now home to the works of Eugène Boudin, Raoul Dufy, Othon Friesz, Georges Braque, Camille Pissarro, Auguste Renoir and Claude Monet, among many others. It is particularly renowned for its impressionist and post-impressionist collections which are among the finest in France.
