  • This place is just amazing, the vibes in it are perfect and we had so much fun. We will definitely come back over and over again  more »
  • Advertised for its free admission, a recent visit proved a disappointment. The ‘free’ permanent collection is closed to the public, but there were 2 feature exhibitions, each with a separate ticketed....  more »
  • What a great visit for me and anyone who likes to see where contemporary art pushes boundaries and tests imaginations. The building is part of the exhibition, with its mixture of interconnecting...  more »

  • Really fascinating displays. Quite confronting in some exhibitions but great and very educational. Most displays are in English and in French so as a English speaking tourist you can still take a lot from it. The price is reasonable but be aware a lot of the exhibitions close at 10pm - they will start asking you to move on at 9.30pm... not at the closing time of midnight.
  • Very nice cultural place! with contemporary exhibitions, large rooms. The open time is the best...till mid-night with restaurant and bookshop! Pay attention because some things like VR area attend only till 22h!
  • Great contemporary art collection. Saw several installations. Not very many people when we went in the middle.of the week, was able to enjoy the exhibits in peace and take our time. The cantine is great if you go around lunch time. Their formule menu was perfect!
  • Post modern experience which will definitely put some questions in your mind. If you're not in the mood to go home afterwards, you can still enjoy a coffee at the exit.
  • We took the underground tour. Its nice. The shop is cool and you can get a coffee there.
