  • 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 .
  • The library is not to adapt to work, its configuration makes it sound all the noises at the entrance! The showrooms of sleek and modern style, don't like it not. But what saves it is the "The sky of Nîmes" restaurant at the top which is GREAT! (Go during the week to take advantage of the formulas of the cheap day for such a gourmet restaurant! Otherwise, obviously €€€)
