  • eHet in Fin de siecle (?) steep built museum very d trouble value to admire. The artworks are of quality exchanged, you have to appreciate your own taste. Visit nice if it rains.... On T ' Roof....

  • even the entrance of this architecturally completely misguided building, which certainly cost hundreds of millions, is a true urinous smelling garbage place, which continues inside. Unimaginatively curated exhibition , dark escalators, huge but arbitrary in the exhibits, such an uninteresting museum of modern art have never really had to experience on a regular visit to such museums. it's not worth it! PS: there is no bistro or similar in Nice then the Matisse Museum, this is a must!

  • The best part about this museum is the rooftop terrace. That’s what makes it worth visiting. Apart from that, the museum lacks some care taking for all the little things: English description texts are blurry and contain typos. Direction signs seem improvised. The interior makes a shabby impression. Most art pieces seem to revolve around the confused artsy struggle: “art to study what is art and what is not”. So if you’re here on a sunny day, enjoy the rooftops terrace. Other than that, a walk in the neighbourhood might be more enjoyable
  • Eclectic art museum with a range of modern art. Some fascinating collections of very different styles and media. Nice building. The art on the roof was a little frightening as it is quite exposed and some of the elevated platforms felt a bit flimsy, not advisable for those scared of heights or small children.
