We visited the gallery last August as part of the scheme with Musee Matisse and MAMAC so entry was effectively free. We were introduced to the work of Martin Parr with an excellent exhibition of his worldwide beach work and have attended subsequent exhibitions of his at home in the UK. On this visit to Nice, however, we were told... More

We had to walk a little to get here but were rewarded by a pleasant little museum with an interesting exhibition. It didn't take long (about an hour) to go around but it was worth it.

Visited this museum with our tickets that lasted 48 hours. It is very small and most of the information is in French. The exhibition of photographs from the 1920's was interesting and it was a good place to escape the heat for a while. I'm not sure we would have visited if it hadn't been covered by the pass however.

This is a fine photographic exhibition replete with an hour-long videa/slide presentation in the theatre section (believe it begins on the hour-every hour- at least it did when we visited. It's an attractive, if limited, display of a famous French photographer's work which was quite revolutionary. Only drawback, though not a deal-breaker is that everything is in French. Worth a...

It's quite hard to find this museum as it's so tucked away but well worth it. When we visited the whole place was devoted to one photographer which was really nice as we got to see a broad range of work. The restoration of the theatre space within the building is breathtaking. This is included in the ticket you buy... More

A single exhibit of bathers at the beach. It seemed to me that the permanent exhibit was traveling and these photos of beaches, bathers and beach balls were erected as a fill in. Certainly not worth the price of admission and when I expressed my disappointment to the manager she agreed with me. Obviously I was not the first one... More

...for those interested in photography, where apart from the permanent collection there is usually an interesting temporary exhibition - their Cartier-Bresson exhibition earlier this year was better than the one in the Pompidou of a couple of years ago!

Not much on display, and lacked anything really inspirational. Glad I found the museum though, and will revisit on another occasion. I think it is one of those places where the current exhibition will determine how enjoyable it is.

Expecting to see some photographs of some of the famous French Photographers like Cartier Bresson or Eugene Atget, but instead a place filled with a modern weird contemporary exhibit. . Not one classical photograph. another disappointment.
