The Modern Art Museum, Strasbourg
The Modern Art museum is a large glass building I came across on my walk. The Museum sits beside the River Ill, in Strasbourg’s historical neighborhood. As I am not a lover of modern art, I didn't go inside, but I did read it houses collections of paintings, sculptures, decorative artefacts, temporary and permanent exhibitions.
On the 1st floor of the museum, the restaurant-cafe terrace which has views of the river Ill and Petite France
OPENING HOURS 10 am - 6 pm,
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 10am to 6pm

ADMISSION IS 7euros for ADULTS 3.5euros for CHILDREN
This strange masqued horse (signed by Mimmo Paladino) stands on the entrance roof of the "Musee d'Art Moderne et Contemporain".
The new glass and pink sandstone building hosts since 1998 works from Gauguin, Picasso, Braque, ... beside those of the locals Arp and Spindler (those artworks were in the Palais des Rohan before 1998).
The rotating exhibitions feature less (or sometime even more) famous modern european artists.
There are also a photography fund, a library and a cafe/restaurant in the museum.
Open : tuesday to saturday from 11h to 19h
thursday from 12h to 22h
