The CAPC is Bordeaux’s contemporary art museum devoted to the emergence of modern art, and whose permanent collection is one of the best in France : 1299 works from 189 artists!
The impressive building, created as the Lainé warehouse where colonial goods were stored, was refurbished and turned into a museum by architects Denis Valode, Jean Pistre and Andrée Putmann.
The CAPC offers a programme of temporary exhibitions, group lessons and guided visits, focusing on the history and development of modern art. They also offer practical art workshops for children.

LOCAL TIP: Since 2000 the museum has frequently been used for exhibitions of music, architecture, cinema, literature or design and often hosts pop-art exhibitions.
