  • Modern, either the building or the expos, varied. At the entrance, there lockers for bags, which is convenient.

  • We learned so much about Mitzger and his work. Well curated exhibition. Interesting work in a large space so not at all cramped. Roof top cafe for drinks or lunch.  more »
  • A full immersion in the daily repeated more or less modified by the vision of the artist through their works.

  • 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.
