  • This is the last place anyone should visit in Nîmes there is little of interest on the two floors in fact in comparison the stairs in between are delightful.
  • Not one vegetarian option. (Feria 2016 June)
  • Nice views from the cafe on the third floor over the Maison Carrée.
  • While the building might look nice, both exhibitions were absolutely terrible. The permanent one (free of charge for everyone) is an collection of boredom causing paintings. The temporary exhibition was one of the worst displays of art I've ever witnessed. No wonder the horrid "Personal Cuts" didn't permit you to take photos (at least not with flash).
  • It says the operating time is from Tuesday to Sunday , but actually on Sunday the library is closed .
