Public Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art

Internationally renowned

Commonly known as MaMa, its acronym in French, the main aim of this centre is to support and promote the work of contemporary Algerian artists. It still doesn't have a permanent collection, due to its recent creation (it opened in 2007), but the temporary exhibitions it hosts each year are superb and have won international acclaim. In fact, no small number of European and North African artists have been lucky enough to exhibit their work here. At this museum, you’ll find interesting photography displays, paintings and all the latest, most cutting-edge trends, as well as other regular activities such as workshops, talks or entertaining performances. What’s more, the Mama building is especially eye-catching and an incredible example of Neo-Arabic Architecture.
