MUSEUM OF MODERN AND CONTEMPORARY ART - MAMAC
Inaugurated in June 1990, the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art is located in the heart of Nice.
Discover nearly 1,300 works and more than 300 artists!
The Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MAMAC) in Nice is one of the most important museums on the French Riviera. Located in the heart of the city of Nice, admire a fascinating collection of modern and contemporary art, as well as temporary exhibitions and cultural events throughout the year.
The MAMAC of Nice covers a vast period from the late 1950s to the present. The structure of the museum reconciles two elements that are representative of Nice's architecture: Sardinian urban planning and the exotic utopia of the Belle Époque.
The exhibition spaces are arranged on four levels. The first level houses the temporary exhibitions, the second and third levels are reserved for the collections. The first floor houses the museum's contemporary gallery. There are 10 exhibition rooms. The main entrance and the museum store are located on the forecourt.
The permanent collection and exhibitions
The MAMAC includes more than 1,200 works of modern and contemporary art, ranging from abstract art to pop art to the New Realism movement. See works by artists such as Yves Klein, Andy Warhol, Niki de Saint Phalle, Ben Vautier and Arman.
The museum's temporary exhibitions feature fascinating exhibitions of contemporary and digital art.
You can participate in educational activities organized by the museum, such as guided tours and art workshops for children and adults. The workshops offer hands-on activities to discover contemporary art and its techniques.
The MAMAC has a café with a terrace offering a breathtaking view of the city of Nice and the Promenade des Anglais. Enjoy a coffee break or lunch while admiring the view.
The museum offers cultural events throughout the year, such as:
