  • This was a great little gallery in the centre of Quimper. We loved all the pictures the Klimt was a high point. There was a queue to get in but it was relatively quick and the gallery was not too crowded. There where 6 or 7 big rooms of painting and a lot of information, in French we used a app to translate.
