The Musee d'Art Contemporain (Museum of Modern Art) was housed in the Palais des Beaux-Arts for 10 years, and in 1995 was transferred to the heart of the Cite Internationale. The museum has a large exhibition space spread over three floors; showcasing paintings, sculptures, films, photos or videos by some of the most famous modern artists. Certain works of art were created directly inside the building. This museum has some colossal pieces and more installations than any other European museum. Every year the museum holds a modern music event known as "Musique en Scène" as well as the all important Biennale d'Art Contemporain (Biennial of Modern Art). The venue also houses a cafe, a book store and a documentation center for those who are interested in research. The space can also be used to host various business events.
