I'm glad that I didn't allow the one-star reviews to put me off visiting les Abattoirs. I found my visit to be enjoyable with several particularly interesting pieces on display. The facility covers four floors: the ground level, an upper level and two basement levels....More

I'm not fan of modern art, but the museum is well organise and situated. It was a good moment even if I didn't understand all of this kind of expression.

This a very alternative type of art museum, you have been warned! It is €7 per adult but concessions is €4 which wasn't too bad. The building is lovely to be in even if a bit strange considering what it used to be. The gallery...More
