  • A real must see venue, close to the Central station. I visited on a Tuesday and spent around three hours enjoying the collection. Just wandered about looking. Highlights include the Spiegel...

  • Great collection, from different time periods and themes. I really enjoyed the small collection on the Arab Spring, and I think most people would find something they are interested in.

  • I absolutely loved it! I didn't imagine there would be art pieces from all over the world so I was very pleasantly surprised. The rules for visitors within the museum were very strict but understandable. A great visit!
  • Brilliant experience for families and adults. Really enjoyed the variety of exhibitions and the kids had plenty to do. Highly recommend. Price for family two kids 24€ more than reasonable
  • Very big museum, you wont be able to see everything at once if you are taking your time and enjoying. They have a quite big collection of East-Asian art, some Art Nouveau, Egyptian, Renaissance and Greek art. You can also discover some modern art, photography, furniture, .... really a lot of different things for every taste.
  • Really enjoyed exploring this museum. Wonderful artworks with Studio Drift and the Pantone Cantina as my personal highlights. Oh and the restaurant serves a very tasty buffet lunch 😋
  • Too many photos to share. The tickets are definitely worth it.but route is not clearly marked, sometimes a little bit overwhelmed😅But the collection is wonderful and I can say that some parts from China are even better than what i seen in China.
