“Go on a nice day”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

My boyfriend really enjoy the museum. Honestly, art is typically lost on me. But make sure you go on a nice sunny day (not hard to fine in Nice!), the top floor is outside and the views are amazing!

“Beautiful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

I'm not a huge fan of modern art, and was quite tired of the Centre Pompidou in Paris. This museum that specialises in Yves Klein and Niki de St Phalles was a revelation. The people were friendly, there were plenty of seats and space to appreciate the art. Beyond that, the building took into consideration the setting and incorporated the outside through the glass "tunnels" and having art in the garden itself. Also, it's all free!

My artist wife made lots of notes of ideas the exhibition gave her. From the roof top there are fine views over Nice.
