Wonderful contemporary art museum right near the river in Bordeaux. The building was a former warehouse used in the past to store commodities being traded up and down the river centuries ago. The contrast between the old building and the modern art is stunning. The...More

Visited with a mixed age family (16 to 76) for my nephew's 20th birthday. The ground floor is good but I much preferred the top floor. The whole experience was really amazing and I wasn't really looking forward to it.

As in any museum of contemporary art not all the punters are going to be happy with what's on view! That's not the point- the point is to be challenged. Firstly the setting- what a fabulous building. Well adapted and will provide great space for...More

If you want to see how it should be done, go to the Tate Modern, where they know how to integrate art and architecture. Seriously, trying to ignore the 'Emperor's clothes' cliche of modern art, the stuff in this building was tragically bad, and I...More

The building is beautiful - an old warehouse for goods imported to Bordeaux from all over the world. It's interesting just to walk around. As part of the current festival to celebrate the new high speed train line, there's a brilliant exhibition on everything to...More

The building was formerly a warehouse and it is interesting to see how it is constructed and how it is functioning as a museum of modern art. The quality of the exhibitions vary. It depends if you like it or not. It is very personal....More

Yes the building is fascinating but what will make the visit is the quality of the art on display. When we went it was excellent and very interesting. Don't expect to see any work you recognise (unless you're a real aficionado) but there is lots...More

As has been mentioned in other reviews, this is a really great building, but I can see how it could be confusing getting around. When we visited, there was no special exhibit on, so we were charged a concessionary rate of €4 (down from €7)....More
