It is not very big, and it is an old theater, the exhibitions are of very high standard, sorry to hear the plans about closing, because the building is so nice, and rather special

The exhibition was great! Amazing black and white photos on the ground floor and coloured ones on the first. Don't miss the adjoint gallery.

I was looking forward to this as it had good reviews, but it seems to be closed. The original location, which is still widely advertised, is close the Nice Etiole shipping centre. However, the sign on the day re-directs visitors to 1 Place Pierre Gautier, which is the small square in front of the town hall in the Old Town.... More

We visited the gallery last August as part of the scheme with Musee Matisse and MAMAC so entry was effectively free. We were introduced to the work of Martin Parr with an excellent exhibition of his worldwide beach work and have attended subsequent exhibitions of his at home in the UK. On this visit to Nice, however, we were told... More

We had to walk a little to get here but were rewarded by a pleasant little museum with an interesting exhibition. It didn't take long (about an hour) to go around but it was worth it.

Visited this museum with our tickets that lasted 48 hours. It is very small and most of the information is in French. The exhibition of photographs from the 1920's was interesting and it was a good place to escape the heat for a while. I'm not sure we would have visited if it hadn't been covered by the pass however.

This is a fine photographic exhibition replete with an hour-long videa/slide presentation in the theatre section (believe it begins on the hour-every hour- at least it did when we visited. It's an attractive, if limited, display of a famous French photographer's work which was quite revolutionary. Only drawback, though not a deal-breaker is that everything is in French. Worth a...

It's quite hard to find this museum as it's so tucked away but well worth it. When we visited the whole place was devoted to one photographer which was really nice as we got to see a broad range of work. The restoration of the theatre space within the building is breathtaking. This is included in the ticket you buy... More
