  • Though I was going to be underwhelmed. Most impressive collection of French Impressionism. Multiple cafe options for coffee, snacks, sandwiches. COMPLIMENTARY listening tour available! Very relaxing and educational. Very well organized as it was interesting to compare artistic design side-by-side.
  • It is a fairly large building with a bit of an odd layout. I'm glad I saw the special exhibit and their usual collection, but it is really a one and done visit. The permanent collection is nice, but you can see and appreciate it all in one visit. The audio guide is free, you just leave your I'd with them and retrieve it when you return the audio device. Definitely recommend the audio guide.
  • The exhibitions was not a hit, the paintings are shown by collection and not ordered chronology, which can be a bit confusing. If you are not a big fan of modern art, you better pass. There were almost nothing that is not that expressive new style modern paintings in which the whole canvas is just a colorful mess. The library, on the other hand, was full of books and very nice and pleasant. I would return the museum someday, but only to visit the library. I wouldn't waste my time again at the exhibitions.
  • Amazing modern place with good exhibitions and programs for families and children. Only can recommend. We had a very great time.
  • I only really enjoyed a few of the exhibitions but of course art preference is subjective. There is a large variety of styles so everybody can find something they like. However, the museum layout is unfortunately quite confusing, so finding what you want is a struggle, and the audio guide is limited to several exhibitions only.
