  • Ideal Outing to be vidited alone with friends or family for kids sections . U can stroll through the rooms see some art works , through time and across different countries. This hype new museum is Always full of beautiful surprises like the artistic exhibition at the moment. The outside structure is very creative and trending . Discounted prices are available check it on their website .
  • Only went in for the viewing gallery, but it's free and the view is great! Really chilled atmosphere, although it was a Monday. Probably be a little hell over the weekend. I'm sure the art and museum are also very good.
  • I loved it! If you like contemporary art and art of the XX century it's the place you shouldn't miss. I recommend buying tickets online to avoid waiting in line. The place is spacious and even there is a crowd it is not too overwhelming and you can walk and see everything very leisurely. It takes a lot of time to see everything so plan a whole day for this place. It has a restaurant and a beautiful library. From the top of the stairs there's a beautiful view of the city and that is a little plus to all you can see here.
  • Very interesting museum but some parts were past interesting and more creepy. Contemporary art can go in many ways and is always changing which makes this museum always interesting but also difficult at times to understand. Worth the visit and only takes about 2hrs.
  • So, if you like modern art, cubism, abstract art or anything that is different from old classical art, it's worth going. I like it, so I went. Many works of very good quality, be prepared for at least two or three hours to visit in a building with special architecture.
