  • A cool museum next to Parc Tete d'Or and Cite Internationale. I saw there a temporary exposition from Yoko Ono. It was a first succesfull experience in Modern Arts. A great family to visit with family and friends.
  • The museum is decent, but unfortunately only one exhibition takes over the entire museum. I personally cannot stand Yoko Ono's brand of pretentious pseudo-art and although that is not the museum's fault, a more extensive main collection could've improved the experience.
  • Expensive and poor, only 3 floors
  • A most enjoyable visit. The exhibitions were surprising & stimulating. The Cafe was not - average over-priced food.
  • Great collection, nice atmosphere. Had a dream house :)
