  • This Sunday we spent a good day in Bordeaux and discover its museums. We did 3 museums in a day: fine arts, decorative arts and contemporary arts. I much preferred the containers and content. But well I know nothing about art! but the buildings are to be seen and especially this warehouse. On the other hand I have nothing even at the expo on the architecture and the works exposed in the warehouse for some it is great no matter what. I prefer the Customs Museum and that of Aquitaine during a last trip

  • Composed of a part has a permanent collection (LeWitt, Buren, Viallat, Long, Merz, Blais, hemming, Tillmans...) and of the nave for temporary exhibitions. It concerns, it questions, it surprises, worth a visit! Even with young children. The staff is friendly.

  • Pay an entry for a ground floor fully in work, a single visible expo on both of the first floor, it is really excessive
