  • The external structure of modern glass contrasts with the ancient Roman temple. Interesting to see, though not entered to avoid noise

  • An interesting space with a good number of traveling exhibit. The snack/bar on the last floor allows you to see the "Maison Carré" from above, which is interesting in itself.

  • 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 .
  • It is regrettable that could properly have the information on the opening or closing of the Art square today may 1, either on site or by telephone. There is little or much public Sunday does not change anything to the case: those who are interested have the right to a minimum of consideration.

  • We discovered the art with an introductory workshop square art for children they keep a very good memory. Part of the Gallery is open free of charge. The works are renewed regularly.
