Worth seeing if you're into modern arts, works of Niki de Saint Phalle, Yves Klein and others...The terrace of the museum is also good for viewing the museum itself and Nice (by climbing up the stairs designed by David Tremlett)

Our group has found his collection is very poor and disappointing. But if you like monochrome works and consider them as high-level and individual art, you will find interesting colours here. However, if you look for other kinds of art, better to visit other museums...More
