  • Good collection for contemporary art lovers and nice building both from inside and outside. It was closing at 10 PM, so I could walk around almost every floor. Outside of the building there are some shows at evening: worth watching!!! One of the most entertaining and impressive shows I've ever seen (I have not seen much ;-))) The group "3 Warriors" will always be in my heart.
  • This is a perfect place to go for artists. The museum from the outside and inside is just amazing. The visit of the museum changed my point of view on art and is very inspiring. You can observe the efforts of the artists because of the many details. You could literally observe each and every art piece for hours!
