“Contemporary art very good”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

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

“Find the entrance, the rest is easy”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

It was difficult to find the way in up some secluded stairs to the entrance, where the staff were helpful The visit is free. A small collection of mainly American works, well laid out. Stunning views from the link corridors.

“just visit...”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

...as the entrance is free, it's always good to go and have a look ... nice big rooms totally in white.... mostly one or the other main stream exhibition of very big names in art....
and don't forget to have a look at the gadgets before leaving.. they have original things for low budget... the caffe is nice as well, but the service not the friendliest..... better leave and go to one of the terrasses of the nice Garibaldi place which has a delisious taste of italian style....

“Very modern and contemporary”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

If you like very modern and contemporary art then you may enjoy it, but for us it was too obscur and modern. It also has a renovation underway which access a little difficult.

“Niki and more”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Don't be unfair by comparing this very good museum to MoMA or Tate Modern. Nice is not a big metropolis, but has an excellent museum of modern and conteporary art. The biggest attraction, (inside and outside) are the surprising works by Niki de Saint Phalle. To get an idea before going, if you pass in front of the Negresco, you will see Niki's Louis Armstrong hailing visitors with his trupete, by the door; if you get inside, there you can enjoy one of the famous "Nanas". But the museum is not only Niki. There is a lot of good works of art to enjoy.
