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.

Very nice museum, we enjoyed it. The parking is dangerous, our car's window was smashed and broken, even if the car was clean and had no valuables in It. There is no surveillance, no security staff and no police.

Set in a lovely sculpture garden, the museum has some excellent contemporary and modern art, as well as a really fun wing filled with "Art Brut" (Outsider Art for English speakers). Big enough to be worth the trip out from town, small enough to avoid gallery fatigue.

The Musee d'Art Moderne is someway from Lille's City Centre and so it's only on my third visit I've made the trip to visit; it was well worth it. Getting to the Musee is a two leg trip on public transport taking the metro line 1 from the City Centre to 'Pont de Bois' and changing to a L4 Green... More

Free access offered to diabled visitor and a companion. The metro journey was part of the experience and bus drivers very helpful. The building seemed to be mixture of British Elizabeth II defense establishment brickwork and some kind of organic concrete structure with sculptures effectively displayed in the grounds. Fine collection of Picasso and others including a fine Modigliani. The... More

We drove about 20 minutes out of Lille ( watch out for the rush hour traffic!) and visited this Modern Art Museum. It's an interesting modern building, set in some greenery dotted with some huge sculptures ( I liked the one by Calder). The Museum is not too big, so you can see every room, without getting an overload of... More
