Nothing special

The current exhibition is big, but not at all that interesting. Some exhibits were ok, but most were boring. Not worth the time.

Please make it clearer for people to visit you. Did a 360 degree walk around this place trying to find the way in. A nice light and airy space. Some interesting exhibits. Currently an interesting one on types of habitation. Costs €6.50 to enter.

Dear CardiffMaddie, Thank you for your feedback. Indeed, our museum is established in the spectacular 'L’Entrepôt Lainé'. This extraordinary building, dating from the 19th century, stored colonial foodstuffs from the merchant shipping of Bordeaux. Be assured that we always pay particular attention to the comfort and the satisfaction of the visitor. Looking forward to welcoming you again in our museum,... More

At least it didn't cost much at €4 per adult (children free). Whilst in the middle of an exhibition change over what was left was at best plain and at worst disappointing. With so many corridors blocked off it was hard to find your way around and the display by Judy Chicago may have its place in modern art it... More

The exhibitions (feminist American artis Judy Chicago and some crazy small works on paper) were nice but did nothing to fill the immense space of the groovy old building. I would like to see more paintings on permanent view, but still it was worth the price.

The building itself (an old warehouse) is quite amazing. As an art museum, this is sadly lacking. There is very little art on display. Would not recommend to others.

I've been to many contemporary art museums in the world, and I have to say that unfortunately this was a real let down. The main hall is dedicated to 'one off' site specific works that apparently can't be displayed elsewhere. It was a very empty space and the descriptions offered little insight into what we were looking at Upstairs there... More

There were only two exhibits available, one in the main cavernous hall on the ground floor, and an outre cinema exhibit upstairs. Everything else was closed off, and even the vaunted cafe was closed. A 13.5 euro rip-off!

I was amazed to find this lovely well converted building empty of art except for a few exhibits. What a waste of space!!! don't bother to go there is full of empty dark galleries. I was glad I didn't have to pay as it was free entrance that morning. This wonderful town deserves much more interesting museum.

Large interesting building... although the modern art is lost with in the vastness of the building. Way too many 'guards' confusing layout and dark and deary. Ticket desk not easily found needs better sign posting. Is there a cafe here? If so I couldn't find it. Don't think I would return as the displays were quite bland

Read the other reviews. This so called museum is virtually empty and what there is in the permanent collection is not worth seeing. They should not be allowed to charge - as many reviewers have said it is a rip off and you leave feeling angry and cheated. Even the building has been badly converted and instead of being impressive... More
