This is a must visit museum if you are staying in Lille or the surroundings. It is only a 20 minute ride on the metro or bus and well worth the effort. The Art Deco swimming pool has been restored sympathetically and when the light...More

We felt so lucky to be able to see the museum with its recent renovations. The art is by less known artists (at least less known to these Americans) but was beautiful and interesting. The second floor had a wonderful selection of textiles to view....More

We went here on the metro but only to find that it has been closed for renovation since April and reopens on 20th October 2018. The restaurant/cafe was open but you could not see a lot.

This is situated outside Lille, easy top get to on the metro. Had to use google maps once there from the station, so check out the route before you go, it's only about a 5-10 minute walk. The museum is unusual as it's based in...More

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.
