  • The work of Lucia Marcucci was striking. She was one of Italy’s main protagonists of visual poetry. Her work features social and political issues of 1960/70’s. She emphasised the condition of women...

  • An excellent museum displaying predominantly French modern art. At the time of my visit, there was an Italian art exhibit as well. Most art pieces are accompanied by descriptions that are in both French and English, as well as in Italian. The museum is thus very tourist friendly. Finally, for €10, the rate of admission is very reasonable and accessible. I highly recommend checking this museum out.
  • Weird and wonderful art here. Interesting enough to spend 1-2 hours. Modern and creative ways of portraying political messages. Well worth coming if you like art, otherwise perhaps not worth 10€ per adult. Several floors here, so you can always skip the less exciting ones. A great view of Nice from the top platform.
  • Modern Italian art from 1950 to today. Easy to go on hot day. From centrum via tram a few stops. Only negative that thete is no cafe ( or I did not found it). Great view from special roof terrace.
  • I really liked the museum, I also visited the Pompidou Centre in Paris and the Reigna Sofia museum in Madrid, I would say this is between them, definitely better than Reigna Sofia, but not sure about Pompidou because that one I visited in a hurry. I would say the expositions here were displayed really good and I really liked the Yves Klein ones. Very beautiful and a chill vibes while visiting. Also free for students or people under 26, not sure witch one.
  • Found this to be a very cool museum. The building itself has a very interesting shape and you get to access the rooftop with incredible views of Nice. It only took a few seconds to buy the tickets and enter.
