The main reason why i wanted to visit the strasbourg museum of contemporary art is mainly because it is the home of some works of picasso, pissarro and monet. It was definitely nice seeing these but a little disappointed because everything is in french, no english. Even the brochures are all in french. Tourists and art enthuciasts would probably appreciate it more if there are english translation on some of the famous works,or even just the english name of each exhibit title. Not a lot of people visiting, so you may just purchase the ticket on site.
It was interesting. I haven’t been to a lot of museums. For what it costs, I feel like I got to see a large assortment of art. We drank some red wine in the cafe. It was some of the best wine I drank while I. Town.
