  • The collection here magnificent. One needs three to four hours to see and appreciate the art. Highly recommended

  • Many empty halls when I was there. The Ghirri photo exposition was good. Great book shop.

  • Great small collection and free admitance and WiFi

  • I had an Exkursion here on Tuesday. I was surprised when the ticket is free, cool! There's no need to fill out any form to take pictures. I got there late so it took me a while to find my classmates in this big big museum, I couldn't find them at first so I asked a security guard there, so she showed me the place where they might be, therefore I could find them eventually :D so niceeeee !!! There are so many rooms that I wanted to get lost here ^^

  • Amazing museum with a wide specter of artists! If you like art, go here. The restaurant by the mainenterence is also really worth a visit!
