Olivier Debré Contemporary Art Centre in

Well yes and no...we had to go up to Tours yesterday to visit one of its many medical clinics as Pauline was having a MOT type check-up (passed with flying colours BTW) and as it was raining, decided to take in a visit to the new contemporary art centre built near the Pont Wilson Bridge in the north of the city. We choose the underground bunker that is the parking on 'Place Anatole France' which is within walking distance of the centre.

The grounds are still being worked on externally but the site is open for visitors although unfortunately for us,not on a Tuesday! I should heed my own advice - in France when planning a trip check opening hours first due to the different opening time criteria 'historical monument', seasonal variations etc.. So after quite a bit of announcing its opening, up until May 20th it is not open Mondays or Tuesdays and when it is, it is from 11.30am (?) - something to do over lunchtime rather than eating? don't think so!

  • 11/03/2017 to 20/05/2017 : from 11:30 to 18:00 (except Monday - Tuesday
  • 21/05/2017 to 15/09/2017 : from 11:30 to 19:00
