We have often enjoyed modern art museums but this one left us rather uncertain. I would guess that entry / price / experience might depend on what exhibitions are on. Unlike other reviews here we paid 6€ to enter in early August. There were a range of exhibitions: perhaps 3 separate areas in the space. The building itself is a... More

great building which also incorporates an architectural 'museum'. A lot depends on what's on when you visit but I really enjoyed it and the bookshop's good. Pity there's no cafe though but some reviews say there is one!

The overriding opinion online is this is a great place to go for brunch on a Saturday or Sunday. Very little mention about the art. I can't believe anyone would even mention it in the same paragraph as the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. The restaurant look great with lots of space on the open roof. It is a pity... More

Get out of the old and into the new. From tradition to something different. Need a break from the old city and maybe even some air con? Stop here to get the other side of your brain working. The museum is in an old building that is immense and open. The collections were interesting especially to me the paper exhibit.... More

We went to the art gallery and we were told that the entry was free and that there were two temporary expositions. What we weren't told is that the permanent art collection was not there. Not sure where it was. They should have had some kind of explanation then one could decide whether or not to go ahead of time.... More

If you like contemporary art, this is a must see. I do not believe that they have a permanent collection. Rather, we say three very diverse but interesting exhibits. The exhibits are in an old warehouse with beautiful stone arches and enormous vaulted ceilings. The exhibits were really spaced out in separate parts of the building. On the roof is... More

Cool modern art museum nicely set in an old building. Also good museum shop. Don´t miss the cafeteria on the roof top.

Loved the way this old warehouse has been converted into a gallery for modern art. It seems small at first but actually there is a lot to explore. The spaces lend themselves well to smaller temporary exhibitions and installations.

CAPC is eay to get to by tram or walking from then main square, although the entrance is tucked away. Small entry fee and free for students. The ground floor was under utilised and you need to do som exploring to find all of the exhibits. There is currently a very good exhbition on football stadiums linking to the new... More

century painting selections. Courteous attendants and staff. Imposing structure but we missed Delacroix and what lied after him.
