    Located opposite the Richelieu Park, the Fine Arts Museum is the work of architect Paul Pamart. Its light and airy spaces bring together on two levels and over 1600 m² the permanent collections of paintings, drawings, sculptures and photographs from the 16th to the 21st century.

    On the ground floor, the Rodin room is dedicated to the works of the famous sculptor, with studies and variants around the Monument des Bourgeois de Calais. An important loan of works from the Rodin Museum in Paris considerably enriches the collection. This room introduces the "Calais d'ici et d'ailleurs" spaces, which offer the opportunity to discover the city, its artists and its territory with 150 works confronting art history and local history. It includes works by Louis-Antoine Barye, Antoine Bourdelle, Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux, Jean Fautrier, Charles Gadenne, Théodore Géricault, Henri Laurens, Germaine Richier, as well as paintings, drawings and photographs by Calais artists Louis and Alexandre Francia, Jean Roulland, Henry Lhotellier, Franck Bernard and Frédéric Lefever. An important photographic background takes us back to the Calais at the beginning of the 20th century. The museum also presents alternating old Flemish paintings and English watercolours by artists as famous as William Turner or Richard Bonington who both knew the city.

    Every year, the museum organises a temporary exhibition dedicated to curious audiences of all art forms. It is accompanied by shows, events, visits and workshops for budding or connoisseur audiences.
