Modern and contemporary art blend here in a creatively presented format. After your visit to the museum, rest your feet in the statue-filled garden outside.

  • It's kinda pendant, in much more small, the Museum of modern art in Paris (Palais de Tokyo). Thematic rather than chronological snap is quite successful. Interesting especially for the metaphysical paintings of g. de Chirico and a nice presentation of some futuristic Italians (Balla, Russolo, Giannattasio, Boccioni, etc.) less known in France.

  • During the first Sunday of the month I was able to visit the YUM with free entrance. The exhibition of works is huge and consists of two floors. The exhibition rooms follow one after the other, one next to the other ... becoming an intricate maze to which we must give a logic to avoid skipping any author. Exposes historical artists: Canova, Hayez, Modigliani, Cezanne, Van Gogh, Morandi, Monet and many others. Unfortunately, the exposure is so distracting that I missed Klimt. It takes some time to go and enjoy it all ... and there are no chairs in all the way! Would be useful to put the chairs here and there ... why not give five stars. Obviously deserves a visit.

  • This is a little out of town but we found the bus/tram service to be very good if you don't fancy the walk. Huge building and spacious rooms containing works by many of the 'big names' as well as less...  more »

  • Entrance fee is very good value. The exhibits are incredibly subjective. Not for everyone...
  • I was really impressed by the well arranged composition of art inside. Wide space, nice views - really worth a visit!
  • Excellent collection including some of the modern greats. Very nice outdoor cafe/restaurant.
  • Limited exhibit at time were there. Only one large room open. Nice building on beautiful grounds. Too bad the entire museum wasn't open.
  • The only thing that worth is the outside and its free! The entrance is 6€ and at this days they say they are in renovation, so they have only 1 room with exibitions.. Not woth it at all! And it's a shame for them to cover the 27th of September that's the Worldwide Tourism Day in which most of the museums worldwide are free of charge!! Even the Vatican was free that day!!!
