  • The building itself is well designed and interesting to see from the inside. The expositions are quite interesting although there were only 2. The restaurant and shop are also worth a visit, great atmosphere! Free on the first Friday of the month.
  • I like this museum. There are always interesting exhibitions. It changes every 3 - 6 months, you can see here modern art, abstractionism, contemporary cinema and music, photos and old fashion things. I would like to come here again.
