This museum is housed in a really nice building by Aldo Rossi. Other then that it's not very special. It houses an odd mix of art, from medieval times until the present. I did like some of the modern art though. The Ipanema cafe on the ground floor is not great, grumpy service....

3 levels. One is devoted to the architect - lithographs. One level is Medieval art. One level is "modern art" - stacks of branches, wrecked cars welded together, blank pieces of plywood on a wall. Not my thing. Outdoor café was pleasant and affordable.

i enjoyed quite a few of the displays. Many arrangements from both the historical and contemporary exhibits caught my eye at times. However, I found that many contemporary pieces were beyond my understanding. Im unsure if this was because of my artistic ignorance, or simply that the so called "art", was simply pretentious garbage. Nevertheless, it was definitely an interesting... More

it's architecture is unique and remarkable, that you will easily find. Im not an expert of painting. But my expectation is too high i think. I had other favorite museums.

We visited Bonnefanten Museum last week and we got really positively impressed by it! Even if from outside it does not seem so, the museum is very big; when you get in you will love its original architecture! We liked very much the way it is organized, it is a modern and very clever conception for a museum. Here you... More

Although the building is really nice, and stocks a great deal of excellent items, I felt rather confused by the odd mix of old and new, too many contrasts in there, which don't add anything to the experience of the visit... Just seeing a lot of good stuff, without any logic of why it was put together doesn't make for... More
