Most museums have at least one exhibit that makes you pay attention, but I wasn't struck by anything here. Certainly there were a couple of areas that were being revamped and maybe I visited at the wrong time, but I wouldn't be in a hurry...More

We were warned that a large part of museum was closed but remaining part was disappointing. Best part of the visit was the views from the top of the museum. Ticket does cover certain other museums but did not have time to visit do so.

All floors were open again for an update since the last reviews mentioning here said there was only 1 floor open. You can spend half hour to an hour or longer depends on your level of art lover. It's great deal to purchase a 10€...More

Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art is an interesting place inside and out while traveling to Nice we came upon the museum. Large sculptures of eye carching design are also located around the periphery as well as a large collection inside.

This is great if you want to pass an hour in Nice, but there was not that much to see when I went. Luckily, it is free for students!

The museum's collection was nice but small. The museum itself is quite impressive. Go up and walk the roof of the building for superb views of the city and interesting architecture.

The best thing about this museum was the air-conditioning. There was only one floor open and they still changed the same price. Could be a great place to visit a different time.

Only one of three floors was actually open when we visited but still had to pay for a full price ticket. At the time of purchasing we didn't realise that this was most of the museum. What we saw was interesting but overall not worth...More

Interesting permanent collection with mixed mediums. The nice thing about the pass to the museum is it grants you access to other museums in town for free. The disappointment we faced was due to showing up only to be told one of their three floors...More

This large building houses a small but interesting collection of a few modern artists. Spread out on several levels, it takes time to peruse. However, the works dominated their spaces. The view from the top level of the building is panoramic. Worth a visit

You have to buy a ticket to get in so the terrace is included in the ticket price! The views are fantastic - you should def go!
