  • A great Museum for the connoisseur. Contemporary art is represented by first-class names and not much work, that only increases his value. The Museum is located in the heart of the city, and visitors in it a bit, which is also good for the connoisseur-you can see the art, when no one is distracted. Tip: be sure to ask to include machine-full comes Tengeli Jean, an elderly woman, pressed the red button and then a full minute will jump around the Hall, catching the departing from the machine colored balls. And Yes, almost all "modern" artists from the permanent collection have already died.

  • We went with my boy of 5 years see the Zoo Machine exhibition. We were leaving for a great time. It started with the machines that could not operate because the person was not the key to get them to market. There were 3 of us in the Museum and we were being followed closely in each room. Some rooms were inaccessible because another expo was being be installed. In the end we has "a fight us" because we espouse in the middle of the exposed animals while nothing prohibited. And it us was "screaming" meters of us because my boy had touched one of the works. I completely agree with the fact that it is forbidden, but we just explain to the child in screaming and without judging the people accompanying. SHAMEFUL and I reprecise that the Museum was empty. They should rather inspire the children to discover museums rather than gross them out.
