  • We decided to attend a pay-as-you-wish Thursday night. It was the last week of Pixel Forest installation and we were determined to see it no matter what! My understanding that this museum is especially fun to visit if you are eager to see a particular exhibition. Although the line was scary and looping around the block, it moved pretty fast. One of the floors was closed because they were changing exhibitions, but we still spent over an hour at the museum. My recommendation is to start on the top floor and make your way down.
  • Such interesting art there and it was all just so far from the norm and takes you somewhere else. Loved it.
  • The museum has some interesting exhibitions which are quite different from other contemporary museums in the city. However, the 1 star grade is for a lack of consideration. I'm totally traumatized yesterday by a graphic video on the second floor. The video showed a woman giving birth. For those who has seen this kind of videos, you know what it is like. I've never seen a birth-giving video before. Without any warning, I was exposed to the horrific scene. Some people, as myself, are very sensitive to bleeding images and wounds. At least there should be visible sign that says "Graphic image. Viewer discretion is encouraged."
  • Interesting alternative museum. Great views from the 7th floor.
  • The people working there are very rude. Person I spoke to at ticketing was snappy. Also, I had a ticket and walked into a ticketed area, and the employee standing in the room pointed to the sign that said ticket required pass this point and said "did you see this?" in a passive aggressive manner. The right way to do it would be to ask to see my ticket.
