But be informed: it's hard to get into an exposition without French knowledge. So I couldn't recommend this place for international tourist, you only can get insight or some impression of unclear quality. There is brilliant book store in this place, but again: everything in...More

Great building! Modern art is often locate in venues with low ceilings and small rooms. This was fantastic! I felt as though I was in a movie set. (Who would have thought that a former slaughter house would be a highly attractive modern art venue?)...More
