  • Good atmosphere and lots of nice looking people too! I don't know much about arts, but warm welcome and student friendly ticket fee made me happy. :)

  • We went by the user. Only had two exhibitions, but ultimately entered. for only two exhibitions it seemed very expensive... I think that you have to enter if you want to see the artists, but if not, it is too expensive.

  • The building is very impressive on the inside. Two hours went so quickly while exploring the art.
  • Amazing modern art. Absolutely recommend the place. It's in the very centre of the city and is free to under 18-year-olds. Remember, that this museum isn't open on Mondays! The cafe here is ok, but a bit too pricey in my opinion.
  • Great art, free wi-fi and a realy nice coffee shop. Don't forget to have a look in the gift shop!
  • Great modern museum with a variety of regular art installations and interactive ones. Not a huge fan of contemporary art but this one of the best I've been to.
  • Building is nice and still looks modern. Worth visiting for contemporary art fans.
