  • A pleasant gallery with nice staff. Worth a visit, especially in combination with lunch as the cafe is marvellous and an art work in itself. 
  • Feels like an independent art gallery. However, its not. It does spotlight artists though, and I have NEVER been let down by the showings. The art work is always complex, and well presented. Always give this place a look, if you are in the mood for art.
  • Not a huge fan of modern art but this museum has very beautiful artpieces. Employees are very nice and polite with visitors, always keen to provide informations
  • Awesome place. Beautiful artwork. Only open till 4 on Saturdays?
  • I love the contemporary pieces, it's a small gallery with a lot of character.
  • The Kemper is small, but has some great pieces. The staff of very friendly and the food at the restaurant is delicious. I definitely recommend you stop by if you're in the area.
