Owner description: The Museum of Contemporary Art, designed by Renzo Piano, is located near the Tête d'Or park, at the Cité Internationale.From its creation, the museum has opted for an original acquistions policy of temporary exhibitions, developed in direct relation with the artists or from works in their collection.Whether for a Roller Coaster by the artist, Cai Guo-Qiang, a “Crying Wall” by Ann Hamilton, or a Salt Water Pool by Mathieu Briand, the museum transforms itself for each artistic project and thus offers a completely different visit every time. This means that the museum closes for short durations between each exhibition.

Check what they are showing. It can be a real find or a dog. You can combine it with a picnic in the parc tete d'or or a walk along the river.

There only one artist represented so if you don't like so much you are screwed. I found it to agressive but it is a matter of taste.

We got in to the new exhibition for a 'sneak preview' prior to the opening in February. The museum is fantastic and makes a nice end to a stroll through the Parc de la Tête d'Or as it is located just outside the park. it is also easy to access via buses C1, C4, and C5 or driving with plenty of parking at the Cité Internationale. It is open Wed-Fri until 18:00, Sat-Sun until 17:00. Full admission rate is €8. Great little café facing the park and nice bookstore.

The new exhibition is really interesting. Robert Combas declares his art is 'rock and roll' and after seeing it, I understand what that means.
