The special Matisse exhibit, which traces his artistic develoment, his influences, and contemporary painters who have drawn on his work (there is a stunning Rothko) is wonderful. To see such a collection of the cutouts is sheer delight; you leave feeling the vivid glow of his colors. This museum is a delight - a great design collection, and the special... More

It is neighbors to the more famous Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum - but should not be missed. It's been described as a large bathtub - but what a wonderful exhibit of modern art. Along with the art attached to the walls - there was human art to connect with - individual happenings, melodic singing, movement and "The Offer" of conversation... More

A museum of modern art but not worth the visit. May be very minuscule people may appreciate the so called art but for most visitors it is a disappointment. The museum is quite small and except for a section on after the World War, that explains the history of term oil and persecution under Hitler, the rest of displays are... More

I spent a relaxing afternoon here and it was less crowded than the Rijksmuseum. They have a very cool Lego room where you can create something and leave it on the wall.

If you do like modern art and design, you will enjoy the collection and the setting. While not extensive, it is good and worth a visit. I particularly liked the decorative arts and architecture. Like every modern art museum it has its " what were they thinking" exhibits but they shouldn't spoil the experience. During our visit there was a... More

I had been meaning to visit this place but wash disappointed. Just didn't live up to what I expect. They had a pair of Philippe Starck pumps/shoes that I bought 9 years ago (even the same colour). Not really sure I expected to see that. But it wasn't just this. The place seemed very haphazard and a mess. Maybe just... More

I know it's modern art and maybe I just cant appreciate it, but it just wasn't my thing. Maybe I should of smoked a spliff before going in. It's all a matter of taste at the end of the day....

We visited the museum on a Monday afternoon so it wasn't crazy busy which me and my boyfriend preferred so we can enjoy in our own time the exhibitions. We found more interesting the top floor were you can see many different works of various artists, sculptures, paintings, installations and others. On the ground floor there was a design exhibition...

A nice modern art museum. Great to see a Lichtenstein in the flesh and some other great modern pieces. A good way to pass a couple of hours. Same price as all the others at 15 euro. The staff also make the visit interesting!
