Caught this I am a Man photo exhibition on it's first morning. Loads of images of both sides of the US civil rights battle in the 1960s including Klu Klux Klan meetings and negro marches. Well worth seeing if in the area... and it's free!

It is easy to find pavillon as the building is very characteristic and located near a highly attended Place de la comedie. We have seen two exhibitions, one presenting photos from ghettos and the other one presenting propaganda photos of Hitler, taken by his faithful,...More

These days it's very nice to find something to do which is free! The exhibition which is on at the moment has photographs by Ralph Gibson who is American. The photographs are taken from 3 books of photos which were taken between 1973 and 1974....More

A nice photography museum located off of Comedie. It's free and has revolving exhibitions of photographers, mostly unknowns.

A cute little building with a free photography exhibition when I was there. Worth dropping in as it's set in a little park right next to La Comedie so not out of your way. I give it three stars as I am not into photography

Le Pavillon Populaire usually hosts very interesting photography exhibitions. It is free to go in. We went to see an exhibition by a Finnish photographer named Elina Brotherus which will now be over. It is a big space inside and we have never been disappointed...More

I enjoyed this thought provocking exhibition. The staff were also friendly , it was free and close to the 'comedie' centre.
