  • I thoroughly enjoyed this museum! I've always liked his work but really fell in love after seeing the "Blotted Line" technique that he used in his early days. Inspired me to go home and draw/paint/cre...  more »
  • This museum gives a good picture on the life and art of Andy Warhol. We were there for an exhibition with Ai Wei Wei, and that was really good. There are 7 floors if I remember correctly, and you start at the top. Occasionally you will find interactive installations and visual material, what a fine variety is. The lobby has a cosy bar.

  • This is a very large museum that details the entire life of Andy Warhol. After you enter you take an elevator up to the top floor(I want to say seventh) and work your way down through the decades he was active. They have family pictures as well as pictures he made as a child on the top floor. As you progress down you see the different things that moved Andy, from early stages of his career in advertising, to later stages of film and even a floor dedicated to time capsules Andy made(basically he was a hoarder and just packed junk in boxes and gave it to friends). This is the closest you can get to an artist's life that I'm aware of and the museum has everything you could anticipate and more. The soup cans, the portraits of stars, even a few canvases that he took a piss on with friends!
  • We really enjoyed playing with the silver balloons in an interactive museum display, but the paintings and collection of artifacts were less inspiring to the kids. Unfortunately, the museum also does not allow visitors to take photos. I think it would have been fun to capture some photos of all the fun we had in the balloon room. The museum is also many floors high with stairs or the option of the elevator, which was busy and slow going. A better place to visit for adults, than for young children.
  • Very exciting place for travelers. Dont miss to visit here. But admision fee is 20 for adults and 10 for kid.
  • I love all things Andy! I am a large LGBT rights advocate, and to see his accomplishments tie in with his diverse sexuality is something that satisfies. I am an advertiser, so this place was cool to see.
  • All Andy Warhol, from the early years of school until his death. The museum is divided in six floors, from the top to the bottom following the chronological life of the artist. A must for anyone interested in pop culture.
