MAC VAL Musée d'art contemporain du Val-de-Marne

At the gates of Paris, the Val-de-Marne Museum of Contemporary Art (MAC / VAL) has successfully created a meaningful dialogue on art for more than a decade.

  4. MAC VAL Musée d'art contemporain du Val-de-Marne


With its clean lines and wide glass facades, the building was designed to house a collection of contemporary art that reflects the French artistic scene from the 1950s to the present day. It includes works by some of France’s most importants artists including Christian Boltanski, Annette Messager, Pierre Huyghe and Claude Closky, as well as presenting the work of emerging artists. New thematic installations of the permanent collection are created each year and the museum also presents many temporary exhibitions.

The MAC VAL aims to make contemporary art accessible to everyone. The speakers of the museum propose interactive, lively discussions relating to the work including a creative tour of the museum every Wednesday at 3pm; a “surprise” group tour every Saturday at 4pm, plus family tours every Sunday at 4pm. Tours are available free of charge on presentation of the entrance ticket to the museum.

Add to that a huge garden decorated with sculptures from the collection, a restaurant with the enticing name "A la Folie" and you have a contemporary art museum that should not be missed.

Discover the MAC VAL through one of the treasure hunts in the Paris Region Adventures application specially designed for families and downloadable free of charge.

The consideration of accessibility encompasses all types of disability situations: motor, sensory, mental, psychological, social. The public team offers educational and cultural activities for people with disabilities, in groups or individually. To fight against isolation and encourage exchanges, the meetings favour a mixed public, people with and without disabilities.
