4) Musée d'art Moderne et d'Art Contemporain (MAMAC) (must see)

This relatively new location has become quite popular in recent years in Nice. It was opened to the public in June of 1990 and was designed to be a museum of contemporary and modern art. The project of putting together the plans for the place started in the 1970s and really took off by 1985 when an exhibit of contemporary art at Acropolis got people thinking about the need for a museum that would feature newer art.

With the help of the French government and some grant money, plans were made to start acquiring works of art for the museum. An architectural project was also started the same year for the actual building. The plans to open were finalized in just five years, which was quite incredible.

There are now examples here from modern and contemporary art, European Nouveau, Minimalism and even pop art. The building is neo-classical in design and form and is quite beautiful in its own right. It is located on Traverse Garibaldi, very close to the Promenade des Anglais.

Why You Should Visit:
For the modern art fan, the permanent collection includes creations of Yves Klein and Niki de Saint Phalle.
Temporary exhibitions are worth checking out as well – some more interesting than others depending on your own interests.

Be sure to go to the rooftop terrace. It has great 360-degree views of Nice. Also on the rooftop is one of Yves Klein's famous flame sculptures.
Watch your step on the terraces as they are not maintained that well and have several loose boards and stones that could pose a serious tripping hazard.

Opening Hours:
Sat-Thu: 10am-6pm; Fri: 10am-10pm
