Charles Nègre Photography Museum
Located in the heart of the old town of Nice, the Charles Nègre Photography Museum offers temporary monographic or collective exhibitions of the biggest names in photography, as well as themes presenting all the trends, from old photography to digital images. . After 16 years spent in the Artistic premises, boulevard Dubouchage, the Théâtre de la Photographie et de l'Image moved to Place Pierre Gautier, in a former electrical substation and in 2016 became the Musée de la Photographie Charles Negro. The Museum has an adjoining gallery dedicated to regional photographic creation. The Prefecture substation, put into service in the 1930s to supply the neighborhood with electricity, made it possible to transform high-voltage alternating current into low-voltage direct current. The industrial character of the architecture and an old overhead crane remain from this era.
