  • Places to go many times. Not only the Museum of fine arts, books, gadgets and cafe where you can enjoy. It is an exciting space. It is always filled with fun discoveries.

  • An interesting Sono Sion solo exhibition re: his THE WHISPERING STAR. Until 7/31
  • Not much going on. Gallery is more accurate than museum.
  • Small but good value and creative use of the space for a cool exhibit by French video artist JR
  • Do visit. They also have a nice design and book store.
