A few floors full with stupid installations. A time completely wasted. They call it art, I call this garbage. If you cannot make art you can always try to shock people with something... Anything... I came here just after I visited the Matisse museum. Well... From heaven to hell.

This museum is a homage to the “Nouveau Realisme” group of artists that largely worked in Nice. Headed by Yves Klein this group of artists produced some of the best art of the 60’s, challenging the abstract expressionists, similar, if not the same, as the simultaneous Pop Art group in New York. So historically this is an important museum...and architecturally a gem. But the art is not to everyones taste. Nevertheless, if you are in Nice for more than 3 days, then I would argue this is a must visit.

Wanted to spend some time here before catching a flight. Unfortunately we were denied entry because our small carry-on bags were "too big", when we asked what the maximum bag size is, the employee at the entrance shrugged and made an arbitrary width and length with his hands.

There are large lockers adjacent to the entry which would have accommodated both of our bags.

In a bright modern building, this is a well-curated collection, well laid out.
I particularly enjoyed the photographs, but those who love Yves Klein or Nikki de Sainte-Phalle will not be disappointed.

Well worth a visit, if you like modern art. Some of us will remember making collages etc at primary school. Some of the technical art is very good, photography and scientific techniques.
