  • The pieces just never float my boat. I read the explanation on the wall and get enough from that on my own from the interesting ideas. I dont need illustrations in a good book to show me what to see either.
  • The true highlight here is the Cy Twombly pieces displayed in a custom-designed space on the second floor. Together, his masterworks create an uplifting triumph of spirit that permeates the lofted and sunlit rooms. You can practically smell the roses! The first floor has three rooms that host rotating exhibits as well as an interesting Warhol copper oxidation piece. While nice to see, these rooms pale in comparison in terms of content and grandeur to the Cy works one floor up. Budget 1-2 hours to fully take it all in. The cafe at the entry level is stylish and modern, perfect for a cake and coffee at 3pm making this museum a nice late afternoon stop. Tip: This museum is only 1 euro on Sundays.
  • I got trapped in the hall outside the public bathroom here. The door leading back to the museum would not open. I screamed as loud as I could but no one heard, until a lady, who was coming in to use the bathroom happened to open the door from the other side. It was very frightening. The Cy Twombly collection here at this museum is excellent, truly monumental.
  • One star for the arrangements and interior design. Not even the exhibition. Staffs are extremely rude and annoying as I approach closer to appreciate the work and one of them warn me not to step beyond the 'line'. There isn't even an actual line there! And NO PHOTOS is the worst rule ever. How can you memorize some impressive works without recording it? The worst point is they chase after you as if you're some kind of thief. The whole vibe is just weird. Definitely not recommending.
  • I was expecting more, I saw everything in less than an hour and it wasn't so interesting. The staff was always watching me in my every move and it made me feel unfomfortable.. The buildimg looks nice from outside tho
