  • The museum offers a big selection of modern and contemporary art. This is not my favourite style of museum but I have enjoyed it. Suggested if you are into modern and contemporary art.

  • Excellent modern art collection in great architecture. We liked the cafe as well, it’s possible to have a drink and hop back into your visit. Terraces are great to catch a view over the dome and get some fresh air. Basement has changing collection. All together great place for a 3-4 hour visit, highly recommend.
  • Stunning collection and presentation of the major art works of 20th and 21st century. Also, great activities for kids, especially in the Pop Lab! Thank you
