  • If you love contemporary art, you'll have a great time. Nice building, extremely pleasant and bright, hosts very good works and collections. If you're lucky, you might get a nice performance.

  • A modern museum in n all ways. The curators surely know how to pick winners. I so enjoyed being part of the art exhibits, from model drawing with quality materials, to wearing headphones on a theatrical in the square stage and following commands while being observed. I closed my eyes. The restaurant was also wonderful. I love homemade spicy tomato soup. They had it.
  • Great museum of modern art with unusual objects and exhibitions. I spent there half of my day exploring everything. Also amazing people work there! The ability of being a part of art is great!
