  • Like other reviewers who prefer representational art, I was not keen to visit. Actually, there is plenty of clever art, much that is accessible to those uneducated in art, and little of the blank canv...  more »
  • AmaZing museum, not bad value as ticket can be used for other museums, great exhibits and good range of contemporary permenent exhibitions! Spent a lot of time there!!  more »
  • The best museum I've ever attended! The exhibitions of various artists are well illustrated and the composition of the spaces is so wonderful. There are a lot of works, but not worth the money at all! There is also a terrace where you can see nice views.

  • The best part about this museum is the rooftop terrace. That’s what makes it worth visiting. Apart from that, the museum lacks some care taking for all the little things: English description texts are blurry and contain typos. Direction signs seem improvised. The interior makes a shabby impression. Most art pieces seem to revolve around the confused artsy struggle: “art to study what is art and what is not”. So if you’re here on a sunny day, enjoy the rooftops terrace. Other than that, a walk in the neighbourhood might be more enjoyable
  • Eclectic art museum with a range of modern art. Some fascinating collections of very different styles and media. Nice building. The art on the roof was a little frightening as it is quite exposed and some of the elevated platforms felt a bit flimsy, not advisable for those scared of heights or small children.
  • Excellent museum, very interesting temporary exhibitions and good variety of permanent art. Nicely laid out with a good amount of open space. Free entry for students with valid student card (I have a UK one and it was accepted). Comfortable chairs throughout, and clean toilets.
  • Some interesting works and well presented but not impressed by dirty windows and exterior. Good that the descriptions are in both French and English, but somehow not quite the quality of modern art that is around elsewhere.
  • If the Modern and Contemporary Art Museum was cut it would bleed creativity. It is a large space perfect for the boundless exhibitions it houses. Let your senses taste, sample, gorge. Hopefully, like me, you’ll be educated by the time experience.
