4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Cool modern art museum nicely set in an old building. Also good museum shop. Don´t miss the cafeteria on the roof top.

“An atmospheric setting for art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Loved the way this old warehouse has been converted into a gallery for modern art. It seems small at first but actually there is a lot to explore. The spaces lend themselves well to smaller temporary exhibitions and installations.

“great building needing better curation to excell.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

CAPC is eay to get to by tram or walking from then main square, although the entrance is tucked away. Small entry fee and free for students. The ground floor was under utilised and you need to do som exploring to find all of the exhibits. There is currently a very good exhbition on football stadiums linking to the new build for the Bordeaux football team, with original models of the San Siro, Munich and Wembley along with images of small local football stands.
Internally, the building itself is outstanding .

“Closed but still extraordinary”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

century painting selections. Courteous attendants and staff. Imposing structure but we missed Delacroix and what lied after him.

“Rainy afternoon in Bordeaux”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

The setting and selection make this an excellent place to spend the afternoon. The interior of the building looks like an old cathedral. It is very well done.
