  • Museum downtown not far from the beaches of the Prado so difficult to access for pedestrians. Difficult to find the entrance when we don't know the city. The most beautiful work is visible by all because it's the thumb of Caesar on the roundabout nearby. What the museum itself, is in a very heavy atmosphere that you will walk... a Saturday afternoon, we had 5 people will be encountered. He must really love this art style, otherwise you'll wonder why you spend 5 euros. Too few works to see, empty alleys, just the sound of the guards who speak in a corner.

  • 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?
