This is a lovely gallery space. There appears not to be a permanent collection on display, but an invited exhibition. We thoroughly enjoyed the Berenice Abbott exhibition.

This photography museum has recently moved into the old town. The modern galleries are small and held a single exhibition when we visited. I was disappointed not to be able to see any of the permanent collections and historical images of Nice.

The museum is relatively small, but the photographs are well displayed in the space available. Staff on reception are very welcoming.. Exhibitions change quite frequently, which encourages repeat visits. There is lift access to the first floor. Nice residents can apply for a card which...More
