This is a terrific venue in a restored warehouse. Essentially not for permanent collections but for exhibits. Unfortunately the art was not what I liked, but if you have time, the... read more

Hoping to see some modern art here but the exhibition on here was horrible. The whole museum seems uninteresting , the space is best described as desolate, I went into the gift shop, did not see an obvious ticketing counter, wandered out another door and then realised I'd entered the museum; both the venue and the exhibits were poorly signposted....

museum is set in a large warehouse on the river front. There were a number of exhibits set over 3 floors which covered a number of contempary art subjects but it seemed to lack any structure and was poorly laid out, That said there was an interesting concorde exhibition tucked away in an alcove. It was free to get in... More

Interesting exhibit on Andrée Putman's contribution to the renovation and her work. Espcially enjoyed the room on her contribution to the Condorde's interiors. The other exhibits were a bit too focused on multi-media. We would have preferred more exposition space dedicated to a permanent painting/sculpture exhibits.

Maybe modern art is not my thing, but the first floor was all works of Alejandro Jodorowsky, which was overwhelming. Cool building in general and outdoor space. Not worth the entrance fee of 6E

This wasn't what we expected. The venue was poorly designed and overall was very boring. If it wasn't raining we would have left within five minutes.

By making a very large old structure right off the center of town suitable for contemporary art exhibitions, the City of Bordeaux (which by the way seems to be exceptionally well run) has again enhanced itself for visitors. When we visited they had enough space to concurrently show four interesting temporary exhibitions. Do go if you are interested in modern... More

Located in a 2 century old warehouse near the Garonne, this is a nice museum for those folks who enjoy very modern art. With a moderate size permanent collection, it is also the home of an every changing presentation of temporary exhibits. The building itself is a photographers delight.

The ground floor was empty and the other 'collections' were rubbish. Shame as was looking forward to attending! Tried to get our money back as very disappointed. We will never return.

You should go to the CAPC in Bordeaux if you like modern and contemporary art. The collection and changing exhibits are housed in a converted warehouse - I think the conversion into a museum has been quite a success. One may discuss the overll quality of the permanent collection, but the changing exhibits are interesting. There is a good café... More
