Everything a modern art building and exhibition should be. Thought provoking, stimulating and of course controversial. The design of the building is striking as is its position in the centre of Nice. Make your way to the top floor using the escalators and out onto the roof terrace to be stunned by the 360 degree views of all of Nice. The art work is great especially the dress made from plastic bottles.

Very much enjoyed this museum. Great design. Interesting rooftop terrace/exhibits with wonderful views but not suitable unless you can walk lots of stairs! Friendly and helpful staff. Learned new things about some of our favorite artists. Art was exhibited nicely.

A rainy day and free entry were the only saving graces. The building structure is interesting and views from it are great. The'artwork' is awful. There are more interesting pieces on your average Etsy listing. Bloggers and amateur craft enthusiasts fair better for innovation and execution.

Bits of rubbish in perspex boxes, canvases in a single colour (gasp!), some paper that was burnt and framed, crushed car and the piece de resistance.. an installation of a spool of film going round and round. The exhibits are tired and need a new injection. They might have been avantgarde 40 years ago, but now people want more than a bit of newspaper torn and splattered with paint.

Go to see the views and building. Don't expect to be wowed by the exhibits.

I've been coming to this museum for years whenever I visit Nice.
There are excellent artists works and many from the USA that you
don't see much of in the USA. Always a new temporary exhibition.
Especially like their Ives Klein collection. Don't miss the roof before you leave the building.

We were largely disappointed by the art presented here, other than the interesting works by Yves Klein. Lack of English descriptions didn't help, but in general the works were extremely 'modern' and difficult to understand by anyone other than an art student (and I'm an artist!).

At least the entry fee was reasonable - the museum is free. The building is interesting, and the views superb. Parking underneath for a small hourly fee.
