Serious collection but it's expensive and pretentious. You really have to like postmodern art. Unlike me.

Well worth a visit if you like contemporary art. More than half the floor space of the museum is devoted to temporary exhibitions and installations, or at least it was when I was there. You won't see a lot of familiar names, but you will be stimulated, provoked, and amused.

If you like post modern art, this is the place for you. Some crazy installation art but worth a visit as it is close to other museums.

No comfortable old masters here. No reliable standard works you learned about at school. Subject matter and materials to challenge and of a high order. From uncontrollable smiles to involuntary winces I was moved. caveat -Nan Goldin I just do not get - the museum has 100 photographs in its collection and I don't think it would hurt if they... More

Collection Lambert is a contemporary art gallery located in an imposing early 19th century building entered via its courtyard off a quiet side street close to the station. The collection features permanent and temporary exhibits in large modern gallery spaces ranged over at least three floors. Any visit warrents at least two hours. When we visited we found it something... More

Spent several hours at Lambert. The building is wonderful. Work exhibited thought provoking and often stunning. Very impressed by artist Adel Abdessemed who I've not come across before.

Was looking forward to visiting this gallery, but when I arrived to visit was told that they were closed for the next 3 odd weeks as the latest exhibition had just finished the previous day. In other words, check to make sure that there is an exhibition going on before turning up, unlike bigger galleries which usually have some sort... More

We had arrived at 5:10pm which is 50 minutes before closing. We had driven almost an hour to the location and had trouble parking. When we approached the front door we were told by the first person to greet us that the exhibit was closed. We explained that we had driven an hour to get there and would stay for... More

We went to the Lambert today. Andres Serrano has a photo exhibition there at the moment (until 12th June 2016) and this made it well worth the visit. Some of it is a little controversial e.g. body fluids. But I really liked the variety and quality of his work and of some of the other exhibits. A good way to... More
