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

This is in a lovely building and it is perfect for showing off an art collection but it is a little too light on content for the price. At the time of visiting the exhibition of expanding cities was good, but that is just a matter of taste.

A brilliant place, with artwork in exhibitions as well as throughout (and on) the building itself. Highlight of my visit was the large Paysages Bas Smets exhibition.

The exhibits in this contemporary museum were definitely avant -garde and difficult to understand. The powder coated pink, lime, aluminium sculptures represented 21st century modern French art. Housed in an interesting 19th century brick warehouse. very little to see in this vast building. not worth the 7.50 Euros entry fee.

I'm not really a fan of contemporary art but whilst in the city on a short break decided to visit this museum. The museum itself is in a great building, an old warehouse and there is plenty of display space however there was very little to see. I would say only about 25% of the building was used to display...

I think I like modern art, but I baulk at paying €7.50 to look at a pile of coal masquerading as art. We wanted to look at the building itself, but that was poorly-lit and unless you absolutely adore the pretentious then give this a miss
