    Inaugurated in 1987, the museum is housed in a former convent of Ursulines of the seventeenth century. His collection of more than 400 works consists of paintings, drawings, etchings. The first core of this municipal fund was formed in 1913 on the initiative of the then deputy mayor Victor Robic, thanks to the friendly relations he had with the artists frequenting the locality. The collection is presented in part, alongside the annual temporary exhibitions. By decree 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 major 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, David-Nillet Germain, Lucien-Victor Delpy, Emile Compard, Arthur Midy, Jean Bouchaud ... Exhibition 2018: from April 1st to June 10th "Regard (s) of Jeanne-Marie Barbey (1876-1960)"; from July 1st to October 7th "Childhood in Breton painting".
