You all must go to this museum, it is amazing. The architecture and statues are beautiful, however there is no censoring names which could be offensive, however this adds to the statues.

Visited on recommendation from friends, easy 20 minute tram ride from Lille Flandres station. Amazing transformation of old swimming pool into very varied museum - paintings, ceramics and special exhibitions. Includes a Meert tea room. Closing for renovations on 01/04/18.

To get to the Musee La Piscine you will need to get a train out to the Roubaix which from the old town is about 13 stops and will take a good 20minutes. Once there you need to walk a further 8-10mins to the museum...More

Amazing space. The preserved 1930's swimming pool/bathing facility was every bit as interesting as the collection of 19th/20th century paintings & sculptures. Takes about 1.5-2 hours to see it all. There is a great café/restaurant on site when you need a break. I had lunch...More

The swimming pool in art-deco style was stunning. The art collection was dissapointing. It was a mix of everything and nothing. There was not much to see and you could finish this museum in an hour. There are parking facilities nearby.

Don't miss this gem of a museum. The building and layout are beautiful in themselves, and the art is fabulous. A collection of so many different types of art you're sure to be amazed.

We were refused entry because we had bags (not huge suitcases, just small backpacks). Bags were not allowed in the Museum and there was no cloakroom where they could be left. Nobody cared. ‘Maybe you could go somewhere else and leave your bags and then...More

Lovely museum with a good range of permanent exhibitions around the old pool area and some really good guest exhibitions. Check locally for details of any current exhibitions before you go. Students and young people go free on Fridays.

Full price is 5.5Euro but there are concessions. Search for their web site for more details. You'll need to be quick as the museum is closing from 2nd April to 20th Oct for renovations.
