This museum is worth a stop if you've purchased the museum pass for all of Nice. If not, don't bother visiting and purchasing a single ticket. It costs 10€ and the 'museum' is only large enough for a single exhibition (no permanent collection). I'm an...More

Comes as part of museum pass - would have overlooked it without it. The photography was stunning and the staff really friendly. English translations not provided on exhibits for those who enjoy them.

I was looking forward to this as it had good reviews, but it seems to be closed. The original location, which is still widely advertised, is close the Nice Etiole shipping centre. However, the sign on the day re-directs visitors to 1 Place Pierre Gautier,...More

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...More
