CAPC – The Museum of Contemporary Art in Bordeaux

Bordeaux has its many interesting sighteseeings, among which one can count CAPC – Museum of Contemporary Art, a place that gathers under the same roof items and ideas partaining to the contemporary period, from the 60s until nowadays. It might seem akward if you are for the first time in such a place, but our advise is not to leave the place. Anyway, the entrance fee is affordable because you have to pay 5 euros in case you are an adult and 2.50 euros if you are a student or job seeker. Of course, there are also membership cards available at the ticket office at the entrance. You can be accompanied by a guide, or, if you want to visit it by yourself, then take your time and visit all the rooms of the Museum of Contemporary Art. It’s worth visiting it, also because it is open most of the time, except for public holidays.
