  • The museum is on the smaller side, but displays interactive pieces by artists from all over the world. Photography is allowed, and the staff will even help you take a shot with the art! The compound has several pieces outdoors, and even the lobby, cafe and gift-shop are decorated with murals and installations.
  • It is a very exciting and funny place to communicate with visual art characters
  • A great place to visit in the city. The exhibition was awesome and the outside itself is as well.
  • Raining day but still enjoy ourselves
