Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum, Bratislava

4.7
Set on a peninsula extending into the Danube River, Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum boasts an extensive collection of modern artwork from international artists. Designed to resemble a sort of modernist Roman galley, the sleek museum features a large collection of pieces from the Netherlands because of founder Gerard Meulensteen's own Dutch heritage. You'll also find plenty of works representing Slovakia, the U.S., and other European countries. Swing by the gift shop and pick up an art-related souvenir or print of one of the museum's pieces. You can also stroll through the grounds outside to admire a series of modern art sculptures.

    This museum is the most amazing venue built in post Communist Bratislava. A well designed building hugging the Danube with a magnificent sculpture garden, similar to the Louisiana Museum in Copenhagen...  more »

    Very interesting modern art museum located on an artificial island in the middle of the Danube. I was there during a morning of bad weather. Is easily accessible by bus (90 it seems) who takes near the new bridge, stops right outside the Museum. After the visit you can stop by the bar for a coffee and maybe a slice of some local cake. (I recommend the Marlenka!)

    If you have a car, a little hassle to find the bus and ride for an hour but it's worth it. the Museum is located on the danube and a coffee on the terrace after the visit does not refuse (the pastries are very good). June 2017 shows are wacky and different, I recommend to lovers of contemporary art, but not only. In addition, visit very attractive price.

    I would give it from 3 to 4 for the museum exhibits, but it is a place to have a look at what somewhat call "contemporary" or "modern" [art]. Mostly (or only) Slovakian artists are represented here. And I would taste from 4 to 5 for the museum shop - a very decent selection of art books. Many rare and worth of having.

    Surprisingly delightful contemporary art museum about an hour's boat ride from downtown Bratislava. An extensive collection for a small museum. We needed about 2.75 hours to see it. Some great local artists and well curated! A great activity for a day in Bratislava!

    Excellent location, magnificent building. Artwork could be of a higher level. Museum shop could better sell stuff that has actually got something to do with the museum.

    The best!!! If you are in Bratislava you need to go to Danubiana. Is beautiful. Take a cup of coffee and eat a special desert!

    Best in location , the views of the river are spectacular. I was alone for most of my visit, which was nice to have the tranquility to contemplate. But more people should come visit this beautiful space.
