  • excitings on each floor. Both inside art solutions and the hilarious panorama view fly your time away 
  • Exciting building. The exhibition was a little too arcane (Perpetual uncertainty) for my taste but had some cool features such as crystal chandeliers of uranglas. There is a section where children can sit and draw, but otherwise feels rather than not especially kid-friendly.

  • Cool building located right by the river. Come here for the nice view over the city (from the top floor), to grab some food or to take part of the world class exhibitions. I really recommend to ask the personell for a guided tour, they are very professional.
  • An exhibition center with stunning view over the river and surrounding area. The content is rich and beautiful. You can also bring back home some interesting souvenirs from ground floor shops.
  • The building and location, right by the river in a contemporary environment make it already worth with a visit. Staff seemed very well informed and were ready to answer my many questions kindly. The temporary exhibition on the Eames was fantastic. Walking distance from the centre.
  • Nice staff, incredibly nice building and usually a few intriguing exhibitions. Eames exhibition was great.
  • it always has something new and intresting! Has a very nice view on the third floor!
