As it says on the tin! excellent display of modern art with helpful laminated information sheets. A haven of cool on a scorching day. Plenty of space around the exhibits. well worth a peruse. Don't miss the restaurant on the 3rd floor.

The whole design is too "arty" to make it a pleasant visit - uncoordinated, poorly signposted, works of so called "art" that a 3 year old child could surpass and, as stated in the title, laughing in the face of the general public. Would I advise a visit - no way there are far superior museums in Nimes to visit!

We went here to admire the views of Nimes and also as I was intrigued by a previous review on TA about the service. We went about 11am and wanted a coffee and cold drink on the roof terrace. There was one occupied table with two young women drinking coke so I approached the bar where a serious looking man... More

I had the pleasure of visiting Nimes on 15th-19th May and visited the Carre D'art. My friend and I had planned to tour the gallery and then spend a few hours having drinks and something to eat in the bar. Unfortunately we were served by a gentleman who made that impossible. The waiter brought us our drinks (a lady had... More

We have visited several of Norman Fosters architectural endeavors around the world and would like to have visited this but it was closed the day that we were there. Actually, upon reading other reviews, I guess I'm not too disappointed that we could not also see the collection itself. But Norman Foster was also the architect of the entire square... More

+ unhelpful staff. I tried to buy a small Vera Lutter print, which was the display print, but the stupid lady wouldn't sell to me because they "only had the large size". Here's me: "No, look, there's one right there...under the plastic cover..." No dice. Maybe their library is good. Who cares.

Wanted to have an Apero from the restaurant terrace at the top of the building with fab views over Nimes. Open, lights on. No-one to be found. Signage confusing. Lifts confusing. Exhibition sporadic and scattered around the building. Disappointment. But the building's interesting.

The building itself is obviously a matter of taste - it doesn't do anything for me. The contents are what really count in any museum.or gallery, and from this aspect I found the place worthless. Worth checking out for any special exhibitions that may interest you but don't expect much from the permanent collection, such as it is, You do... More
