I real gem in Lille. We went on the first Sunday of the month which meant it was free entry (a pleasant surprise to us). I'm a big fan of cubism, and so the Picasso's and Braque's were a real joy to see. It's an...More

Located in a French new town, easily reached by L4 bus, this is an interesting modern museum in a sculpture park. I found the contents a little underwhelming, although there were some big name pieces.

We started the day in Lille with a visit of this museum. Collections of modern & contemporary art are OK, but not outstanding. The plus comes from the collections of Art Brut: you can see what "people with disturbed minds" can realize
