  • I really enjoyed the 'Art and Violence' exhibition. It was very thought provoking and I was given a very insightful tour by the staff. Definitely worth a visit!! 
  • We were in October there and found the exhibition very interesting. It is quite something else and frees the head between the whole "normal" tourist attractions and the hustle and bustle of the city. My 13 - and 15-year old daughters found the exhibition very interesting. For children, I would not however recommend a visit.

  • Really good exhibitions. Spent a week here for a mentoring project had such a good time. Staff and mediators are amazing definitely have a look around after all its FREE.
  • A great little gallery! When I went they had the exhibition on the topic around seeing. The staff are friendly and the exhibitions itself was interactive and really well thought out. I enjoyed seeing how they explain the concept in plain English.
  • Always interesting, thought provoking and usually interactive exhibits in the gallery. There is a quirky shop here too selling science tchatche, wondrous books and souvenirs of the exhibits. Combine that with great coffee, wonderful (and generous) pastries and a restaurant with delicious food; always a winner.
  • Great little gallery that always has interesting science related exhibitions, mostly free or about €10 depending on the exhibition so check out the website to see what's on. The space itself isn't big so it's a good size to spend 30-60min while you're in the area.
  • You can always lear something new here, great curation of interesting expositions!Try the coffee as well, very good!
