Terrific building, but art not my taste

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

I was amazed to find this lovely well converted building empty of art except for a few exhibits. What a waste of space!!! don't bother to go there is full of empty dark galleries. I was glad I didn't have to pay as it was free entrance that morning. This wonderful town deserves much more interesting museum.

Large interesting building... although the modern art is lost with in the vastness of the building. Way too many 'guards' confusing layout and dark and deary. Ticket desk not easily found needs better sign posting. Is there a cafe here? If so I couldn't find it. Don't think I would return as the displays were quite bland

Read the other reviews. This so called museum is virtually empty and what there is in the permanent collection is not worth seeing. They should not be allowed to charge - as many reviewers have said it is a rip off and you leave feeling angry and cheated. Even the building has been badly converted and instead of being impressive... 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
