  • This is a quick (free) visit which is a convenient must-see break from the slopes. Interesting and modern, the two large exhibit rooms are thoughtfully curated.  more »
  • The Museum building has a modern architecture and very pretty. On the upper floor you have access to a terrace with a wonderful view to the mountain. Well worth going the visual. The entrance to the Museum is free.

  • It is a 3-story building an underground, built between 2012 and 2014 and designed by Shigeru Ban, who also designed the Arch Paper of MoMA in New York. It has a lift completely of glass that allows to see the street during use. Large galleries where contemporary artists present. On the top floor there is a café, a venue for presentations, and is the roof which offers view into some mountains like Aspen Mountain. In addition, there are rooms for school activities and a shop with interesting memories.

  • Loved this place. There was a room full of blue paintings and one painting with hidden vaginas in the background. Its a cool looking building as well. It's free to the public to view the galleries. There is a place to get food up on the roof as well.
  • It's not huge, but this is a really beautiful building with some interesting art. When we were there they were just opening it no held a silent disco on the roof. Was fantastic!!!
  • Great space tucked away in the middle of the city. So happy this is here. And it is free to the public. Good collection.
  • The building looks great, very controversial! Staff know a lot about the art. As for the art... Well... It depends what they are displaying at the time. When I was there it was rubbish.
  • We saw Tibetan Buddhist monks from Drepung Loseling Monastery creating (or finishing is more correct) a temporary mandala sand painting on the museum’s rooftop deck. It was great (and kind of reminded us to an episode of House of cards).
