  • If You like modern art this museum is worth of visiting. Same ticket is valid also to various other museums in Nice (in the same day).  more »
  • The permanent collection was impressive for who appreciates modern art. Much to see of Nikki de Saint Phale, and small. You get r good impression of their life and work.

  • Not the best for just casual viewers of contemporary art, in my opinion. There's not many pieces you can just enjoy for their appearance, which is what I usually enjoy at modern art museums. Instead, you might need to be able to understand and interpret the art a bit better than average to really appreciate what this museum has to offer. Still, I enjoyed myself enough to make the trip worthwhile.
  • Great space well laid out with excellent permanent exhibits. Unfortunately visited on a day when temporary exhibit closed. Some of the more prosaic elements such as loos and shop could be better. Definitely worth a visit.
