There was reassuring security at the entrance. This is a large and spacious modern building near the river and Petit France. Really loved works by the impressionists, and Rodin's sculpture of The Thinker. There were many modern abstract and photographic works which were intriguing but not my favourite style. There is a cafe there but we did not go to... More

This is not a huge museum and it will take less than an hour to view all of the pieces. It is Contemporary art with many artists that I was not familiar with their work. I felt it was average and not a must see in the city.

Other reviews here had caused me to expect a rather modest collection of art by perhaps somewhat obscure artists - nothing could have been further from the truth! There were a large number of pieces by artists absolutely central to the genre; many of these pieces were completely unknown to me, which made the experience that much more rewarding. The... More

This is not the best museum in the world, bur fair enough... From Giacometti to Arp, always good to go and have an insight. Café on the roof is very nice! Great view.

The paintings were a bit of a disappointment but I live in NYC so I am spoiled by what we have here. That being said it's still worth a visit; the building is interesting, the paintings are ok, and they also have a nice place to have lunch. There is a nice terrace next to the dining room with pleasant... More

We have been very disappointed with this visit. The museum was almost empty with very few interesting pieces. This is one of the Museum of Modern Art the less Interesting than we have visited. Wehope that IinTHE FUTURE they will have a little more consistent exposures. Besides, there was nobody when we went there.

We used our Strasbourg passes to gain free entry here and it was well worth it. Security was very tight and the staff seemed very nervous, but given the recent events in France, they are forgiven. The museum exhibits are interesting, varied and well displayed. Our children really enjoyed themselves, although one over-zealous lady did spoil it a bit by... More
