  • Situated in an old factory, the space is very impactful and worth a visit (tickets are €6 for adults)! Considering how huge the structure is, I was surprised to find out there was only one exhibition to see (we went for the one on tattoos), but at least they provided portable stools to take around with you, which I appreciated very much! There is a cafe & restaurant available inside. A bit over priced if you ask me but inside a beautifully curated space. Ps. I would definitely take the lift to the rooftop to enjoy the views
  • The experience was amazing. We draw some templates that they had and we could see our paints moving on the walls. Really beautiful and recommended if you are with kids (or not)
