  • You will enter into a cold lobby, you will buy the tickets before a body of the 1950s, on a table you will see four works for sale, nothing else. To the right of the piled furniture waiting for who knows what. In short, the atmosphere is immediately boring. The visit is quiet because there is almost nobody. The "animated" works are not. There is nothing transcendent about the works themselves. Is the person responsible for Culture in the city of Marseille know there is a Museum of Contemporary Art in the city?

  • A great Museum for the connoisseur. Contemporary art is represented by first-class names and not much work, that only increases his value. The Museum is located in the heart of the city, and visitors in it a bit, which is also good for the connoisseur-you can see the art, when no one is distracted. Tip: be sure to ask to include machine-full comes Tengeli Jean, an elderly woman, pressed the red button and then a full minute will jump around the Hall, catching the departing from the machine colored balls. And Yes, almost all "modern" artists from the permanent collection have already died.
