Interesting and well designed.

This is a medium sized art gallery set in a park which was being enjoyed by a number of families. Some interesting sculptures outside and art for all tastes inside.

Worth the effort. A museum that has a lot to offer in a great park and building. The brut art I challenges our pre-conceptions about the medium.

It was quite a way out of the city and I made a mistake by getting a taxi there as a solo traveller (over £30 ). The hotel had told me that it was a little way out of the city centre, and I should have heeded their advice and got the Metro and bus. The museum itself is set... More

I wanted to go here for years and was not disappointed! I came by car and I do think to find it you need a navigation system since it is quite away from Lille. Beautifull building existing of two fused parts in small but nice sculpture garden. Spend 15 minutes extra to walk the garden. Sundayafternoon it is not very... More

The Museum of Modern Art on the outskirts of Lille requires a bit of an effort to get to but is well worth the effort. The works of Modigliani, Braque and Picasso alone make a visit worthwhile.

The Art museum is one of the best reasons to visit Lille. It was an excellent collection of modern painters as well as Art Brut. The outdoor is beautiful with some good pieces of well-known artists. The interior of the museum is great, well lighted, and spacious, the building in my opinion is a work of art.

LAM locates in the suburbs east of Lille, accessible by car, but also easily by Metro /bus from Lille centre. The sensible acronymic name is a distillation of „Lille Métropole, musée d’art moderne, d’art contemporaine et d’art brut”. As this implies there are three distinct displays: modern art (to the early post war), contemporary art (ie loosely post 1980) and... More

We visited here on a rainy afternoon with our sons, 3 & 6. The outside was really pretty, even in the rain but have to say that the inside was a bit disappointing. Perhaps we are spoilt as our nearest modern art gallery is the Tate Modern and we expected too much! However the entry cost was very reasonable and... More
