This is in a lovely building and it is perfect for showing off an art collection but it is a little too light on content for the price. At the time of visiting the exhibition of expanding cities was good, but that is just a matter of taste.

A brilliant place, with artwork in exhibitions as well as throughout (and on) the building itself. Highlight of my visit was the large Paysages Bas Smets exhibition.

The exhibits in this contemporary museum were definitely avant -garde and difficult to understand. The powder coated pink, lime, aluminium sculptures represented 21st century modern French art. Housed in an interesting 19th century brick warehouse. very little to see in this vast building. not worth the 7.50 Euros entry fee.

I'm not really a fan of contemporary art but whilst in the city on a short break decided to visit this museum. The museum itself is in a great building, an old warehouse and there is plenty of display space however there was very little to see. I would say only about 25% of the building was used to display...

I think I like modern art, but I baulk at paying €7.50 to look at a pile of coal masquerading as art. We wanted to look at the building itself, but that was poorly-lit and unless you absolutely adore the pretentious then give this a miss

We have often enjoyed modern art museums but this one left us rather uncertain. I would guess that entry / price / experience might depend on what exhibitions are on. Unlike other reviews here we paid 6€ to enter in early August. There were a range of exhibitions: perhaps 3 separate areas in the space. The building itself is a... More

great building which also incorporates an architectural 'museum'. A lot depends on what's on when you visit but I really enjoyed it and the bookshop's good. Pity there's no cafe though but some reviews say there is one!

The overriding opinion online is this is a great place to go for brunch on a Saturday or Sunday. Very little mention about the art. I can't believe anyone would even mention it in the same paragraph as the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. The restaurant look great with lots of space on the open roof. It is a pity... More

Get out of the old and into the new. From tradition to something different. Need a break from the old city and maybe even some air con? Stop here to get the other side of your brain working. The museum is in an old building that is immense and open. The collections were interesting especially to me the paper exhibit.... More
