What a blue!

Sunday in March is a good time to visit as it is not crowded and you can really enjoy the exhibits at your own pace with no distractions.

This is an attaractive space for displaying art. There was nothing in paarticular that I enjoyed in the exhibits but perhaps my lack of appreciation.

At the time of visit there was a temporary exhibition of It was magnificent event though I am not very into contemporary art. But this helped me to better understand this form of art. Well spent few hours. Also good views from the roof top.

Eclectic collection may not be to everyone taste but there is a little of everything so worth the effort. Make the modern rooftop garden are explored fully as the views towards Mont Boron and the castle/port area are fabulous.

Easy to find and centrally located this awful building houses a fair collection of modern art but with a very good part of what is local modern art and often very good temporary exhibitions.

I've got the opportunity to visit the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art several times these last years as I'm lucky enough to live in Nice. The MAMAC, as it's called in french, is a very interesting and fantastic place to visit. Not to hesitate to get up to the roof of the museum where you will enjoy a great... More

Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, or MAMAC is conveniently located just off la Coulée Verte, Old City and Place Garibaldy. You probably stood there, right in front of the building, waiting for the bus to Villefranche, and never bothered to go in... Try it. It's well worth a visit. The architecture is hard to appreciate from the outside, but... More

A nice museum, offering an insight into mostly local artists and some international pop-art (february 2017). The works of Yves Klein was a personal favourite, but not in any way the only artist of interest. The curation seemed clear and intentional, if perhaps a bit conservative. Honest question: are there no female artists on Cote d'Azur?

Unfortunately no special exhibition when I visited. Collection a bit boring - art that was considered fun and frivolous in the sixties and seventies usually don´t get the contemporary public in the same mood. But the story of Niki de Saint Phalle is a good one. And that of Yves Klein.

The museum doesn't have any big name pieces but it makes up for it with its big name international artists who originated from Nice. It's refreshing not to be absolutely swamped by hordes of people in this space unlike other museums like the Met or the British Museum. The space itself is quite interesting; easy to navigate, well laid out... More
