> The MuMa André Malraux Museum of Modern Art This modern building, a wonderful light box of glass, contains a fabulous collection of Impressionist works, the largest in France after the Musée d'Orsay in Paris. While contemplating seaside works by the greatest names in French 19th and early 20th century art, watch all manner of real boats and ships slipping past, going in and out of the Seine estuary just beyond the building.
> Notre-Dame Cathedral One of the few major historic buildings to survive the war.
> Vauban Docks (website in French) These docks were built from 1840 onwards along the same lines as the London docks. They have now been refurbished to house big stores and leisure facilities.
> Les Bains des Docks Among exciting recent architectural projects in Le Havre for the 21st century, this stylish, fun aquatic centre with spa is the most appealing to visitors. It was designed by one of the most celebrated architectural practices in contemporary France, that of multi-award-winning Jean Nouvel.
