  • I love this museum. It was free for me as a student. Architecturally beautiful and it has a cute little garden on the top which I adored. The people were super friendly and helpful. I can definitely recommend!!
  • This museum truly outdid itself from my expectations. Some of the best concepts I've ever seen and the most fascinating exhibition on op art. Seriously impressed.
  • Just love the atmosphere in here. The roof terrace also invites you to gaze on the beautiful scenery overlooking the idyllic town. The temporary exhibitions have been super interesting, and with 6 years apart the permanent ones also provide something to marvel at, still.
  • Visited the museum on a Sunday. The security guy and the lady on the front desk asked us to leave our stuff outside the museum at a 5min walking place as soon as they saw we had our carry on luggage with us. When we arrived at the place they led us, we found the site was closed (it's closed every Saturday and Sunday). Sadly, we couldn't visit the museum. Ps: a smile would have been nice
  • Highly recommendable museum in a very cool building. Loved the way you‘re guided through various exhibitions. Stunning pieces of various contemporary artists. Make sure to visit the rooftop to get a unique stunning view of Nice.
