Les Abattoirs

Museums and monuments


In these slaughterhouses that were converted into a museum of modern and contemporary art, there haven't been animals for many years... although we are greeted by a strange bird!

This unusual location puts its 3,000 m2 at the service of the 4,000 works of art in its permanent collection and the major exhibitions that it regularly hosts and for which it is famous (Franz Gertsch, Dado, Daniel Spoerri, Roland Topor, etc.). The very spacious halls allow for pleasant circulation, even in the most crowded conditions.
All the great names of modern and contemporary art can be found there: Fontana, Riopelle, Chaissac, Hartung...

Outside, 16 monumental works of art make up an original and colourful route that starts in front of the museum entrance with Fernand Léger's Les Femmes au Parroquet (Women with Parrots).
The place, witness of a living culture, hosts concerts, performances and screenings.

Horaires

From Wednesday to Sunday, from 12 pm to 6 pm. Late night openings until 8 pm on Thursdays (except during school holidays). Closed on January 1st, May 1st and December 25th.
