  • Very nice art museum in Umea. Lots of different exhibitions and art corner for the children. Very nice location by the river with amazing views as you move upstairs. Absolutely worth a visit! 
  • Have been here several times as this is an overall rating, usually try to go here every time I'm in Umeå (which in all honesty is not very often). If you have time to spare, it is a very good place to spend it on, and if you do not have time to spare, it is often worth planning about to catch a visit here. The quality varies with the exhibits (and depending on your preferences), but usually they are worth seeing. In addition, it is a very pleasant walk along the River from the Centre of Umeå to Picture the Museum. And the view from the Museum's upper floors are often worth seeing.

  • Watched an exhibition on nuclear energy and domedagstema. At times, we looked out the Windows and admired in a hazy State ... Beautifully! The staff were really on their toes and gave recommendations on how to see the show! The shop at the end was fun and intrressant! It was comfortable to take the elevator up and down by hand!

  • 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!
