  • See now the remarkable exhibition of the Niçois artist Ernest Pignon Ernest January 2017 - outstanding works and that take you guts - with the extension to the chapel Saint Pons - and always the pleasure of seeing the permanent fund

  • At this time the fabulous artist Ernest Pignon-Ernest who speaks to us in drawings for a 40 years that disown not the caravan of our society.

  • This museum kicked off with its "crown jewel," but the subsequent exhibits were disappointing. The pieces were not thought provoking, other than provoking the question, "Is this art?"

  • Very nice museum. Great escape on a rainy day like we had. Interesting exhibitions, more artistic than the regular modern art rubbish you get at similar museums else where, in my opinion of course :)
  • Wow really great modern and con art museum! Actually the best one I've been! Nice collections in great museum building with a view over Nice from its roof.
  • Beautiful view from terrase. Good service. Interesting and diverse exhibitions.
  • Not a bad collection on pop art, but some terrible kitsch as well. It also had a good temporary exhibition on Ernest Pignon-Ernest, whom I didn't know. Great views over Nice from the rooftop.
  • Exhibits were quite good. I liked the sculpture, especially the Niki Saint Phalle pieces. Didn't much like the atmosphere of the place, was very stiff. Also on a practical note, the only toilets are right by the entrance, so if you need to go after entering, you actually have to exit the gallery and go in the entrance again, very weird and inconvenient.
