More than 60 rooms in the Musée des Beaux Arts de Rouenare hang with works by artists, such as Géricault and Delacroix, among others. Monet fans will also find some of his canvasses here, including a few that depict the Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Rouen.

One TripAdvisor user calls it, "a superb provincial museum," saying that it "is one of the finest I have seen in France outside of Paris. If you are in Rouen for the weekend, I highly recommend setting aside a couple of hours for a visit."

Closed on Tuesdays, you can visit the other days from about 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. And for a museum of this breadth, the admission fee (about €4 EUR or about $5.50 USD) is pretty reasonable. For more information, visit the museum’s website.
