If you are a fan of Yves Klein, Niki de Saint Phalle and Jean Tinguely, the MACAM is a MUST. Their permanent collection is extremely well curated, with a collection that spans from the late 50s until today. Beautiful space organized in cloisters and levels...More

As someone who is not particularly attuned to modern and contemporary art, it was still a reasonably enjoyable afternoon, and the free entry for students was a nice surprise. The layout is well designed to lead the viewer around the exhibits without feeling too linear,...More

MAMAC in Nice is a vast new building but it's almost empty and what IS on display there is almost entirely insulting due to being generally bereft of artistic workmanship. In April 2018 there were only half a dozen objects on display which were worthy...More

I went here for the Warhols and Lichtensteins - they weren't there. Apparently the collection is rotated and they were in storage. What was on display was a lot of blue stuff by Yves Klein, who only used one single colour in all his art...More

I was on a day business trip to Nice and decided to do something cultural for once. I love modern art and Mamac is right in the city centre, walking distance from my hotel. I was truly stunned. First of all the museum was hosting...More

This museum was only displaying art pieces, that regular people don't consider art. Like a rope and other materials hanging from the ceiling, Stuff covered in velvety blue resin, items compressed into a cube. The most bearable part was the exhibition about the french riviera....More

Was looking forward to see the work by Niki de Saint Phalle as I am a huge fan but was a bit disappointed. Museum had no map available and the floor maps on the walls were out of date. It was OK, but wouldn't say...More
