  • A very modern design, low drempelig to the public, t a permanent exhibition and ever new guest exhibitions. A must to admire. A forum for contemporary art. the Interior and the various rooms were designed by Axel Vervoordt and architext Tatsuro Miki.

  • Of course M HKA's exhibitions change every few weeks or months, so a review is highly dependent on the exhibition on display, but overall - as a returning visitor for the last 10 to 12 years - and an ...  more »
  • MuHKA is a museum that offers a variety of exhibitions: from Fabre s oeuvre to the avant garde of the 1960s. The themes are always worked out down to the last detail-pleasant place to stay

  • Let's start positive: I really liked the building and the restaurant at the top floor is nice. You can dine next to a piece Keith harring did on one of the walls. But... The expositions were not really my thing, there was no context given and only a limited number of artists exposed. I wouldn't go there again or recommend it to anyone...
  • Not worth the visit today. I've never been before. They have lots of building work going on so there is limited items to see. There is a reduced ticket price, however if we had been fully aware of the limited exhibition we would have not paid the money. On the ground floor there was 'photographic art work'. Probably the worst selection of photographs in an art museum I've ever seen. Don't rate it at all.
  • Very disappointing museum, only seen 2 pieces of art that I liked. Not really worth your time or money.
  • Contemporary exhibitions with a distinct opinion on variety. You can see a wide range of artists, some more interesting, some unknown. Always a good idea to come by every two months or so. From time to time they do a bigger exhibition which goes beyond the current works of an artist. Nice to see the evolution in the oeuvre. There's also a focus to involve young people into the world of plastic arts.
  • Hm, contemporary art in a very exciting building but.. something is missing. Inspiration?
