France is full of small museums which retrace its history. In the southwestern city of Agen, the National Gallery houses 3,000 works of art. Ranging from Antiquity to the present day, they are housed in four Renaissance mansions which were honored by the presence of Catherine de Medici and Queen Margot. Meanwhile, 800 kilometers north, the small Norman port of Honfleur has dedicated a museum to local artist Eugène Boudin. He was one of the first impressionist painters to capture the changing light of this part of the French coast.
