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.

Set in a park with pleasant walkways and outdoor sculptures to delight the building is an interesting piece of architecture itself. Within are some bizarre pieces of artwork alongside conventional albeit contemporary items.

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
