  • Great museum with interesting exhibitions. They have 2 regular exhibition spaces which are included in the general admission fee. They also had two extra one with seperate admission. Quite pricey though

  • Great contemporanean art museum! Some part is free and you must pay for visiting other parts (as temporal exhibitions). The pool installation is very good. It is also interesting the library. Both free. There are other museums near.

  • A few very nice exhibits, but not a lot here. Probably a very good place for families with children. A few exhibits they can play in outside, and a very large creative area for children inside. The popular swimming pool exhibit was very cool. The gift shop was very nice as well. Some of the exhibits are free, but many require tickets.

  • I don't know much about art but I love the 'pool'. It was great experience.

  • It’s a very popular venue among the locals and definitely a tourist attraction as well. They feature a lot of modern and interactive art pieces by local artists.
