    Inaugurated in 1987, the museum is housed in a former 17th century ursuline convent. His collection of more than 450 works consists of paintings, drawings, engravings. The first nucleus of this municipal fund was formed in 1913 on the initiative of the deputy mayor of the time Victor Robic, thanks to the friendly relations that he maintained with the artists attending the locality. The collection is presented in part, in parallel with the major temporary exhibition. By order of January 16, 2012, the museum of Faouët obtained from the Ministry of Culture the name "museum of France". The museum attracts many lovers of fine arts, attracted by the importance and quality of the exhibitions presented there. Since 1992, the museum has devoted large retrospectives to the work of artists who have practiced their art in this small pictorial city: Mathurin Méheut, his pupil Yvonne Jean-Haffen, Marius Borgeaud, Germain David-Nillet, Lucien-Victor Delpy Compard, Arthur Midy, Jean Bouchaud ... Exhibition 2017, from April 1 to October 8: "The crafts seen by artists in Brittany".
