“Great signage, not sure it's still open”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

There are large signs near the main train station in Lille pointing to this attraction but ... It's never open! Our hotel was close by so we went back a few times throughout our stay and it was always closed with no indication of opening times despite still being advertised on City maps.

“Mind boggling”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

Imagine a place where an elephant is hanging by its trunk from the perfectly white walls of an incredibly complex structure that is Tri Postal - that is Tri Postal. Screaming children in the open spaces and hints of sexuality in secluded corners REALLY shows the oppositional forces that dominate today's contemporary art secrets hidden in plain sight in this museum. Lille must adopt more features of this museum to be the true French capital of culture it is striving to be. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

“Sort of Studenty Modern Art Exhibition”
Reviewed 4 January 2013

Central to Lille 3000 this is a nice little arts venue, houses a cafe-bar and a good sized exhibition space holding some great pieces of art for the Lille 3000 exbho.

Loved the over sized chairs in the cafe and the shop was also quite good.
