The building is amazing and if you enjoy modern or contemporary art you will be impressed with the extent of the galleries and the exceptional presentation of work
Excellent conversion of lovely old industrial buildings (the cattle market and slaughterhouse) now housing an interesting collection of 20c French art and changing visiting exhibitions.
