This is a complete waste of money. A huge building with nothing in it apart from a few pieces of modern art which are absolutely terrible. There is an entry fee of €8 which is a complete robbery. Cloakroom and toilets are in the basement and the exhibition area is on the first floor. Avoid this place at all costs.... More

It's an art museum...If you like modern contemporary art you may find this interesting...If like me you don't then this may not be your cup of tea. The building itself is very striking architecturally, particularly at night. Nice setting too just by the mighty Danube. There is a decent cafe on the ground floor to add. Personally that would be...

This fabulous building which house the Museum of Modern Art, is lit up at night. On the other side of the river to the main town it vies for attention at night.

The building itself is unique as it is nestled among some of the original houses of Urfahr (the other side of the Danube) overlooking the not so blue but rather brown Donau. The exhibits within the structure are very unique, one of a kind experience which will make u think outside of the box. Each floor offered a different exhibition... More

Explored this museum during riverboat cruise stop. Main exhibits on upper level; lower level more like amateur artwork. Mosbacher was very interesting. Rented the headset for more detailed commentary re left side of museum artworks/portraits/sculpture; also used portable seat. Wish headset info had included commentary re Mosbacher, et al exhibits on right side of museum!

This gallery does not meet up to it's own, and others ' advertising. The blurbs we had read and the vids one can see of the Lentos illuminated at night led us to have high expectations. Unfortunately the gallery is well below expectations. The building inside is a concrete warehouse, dull , bland ,unstimulating and a very poor venue for... More

The museum seems smaller inside than it appears from the outside. They have some interesting exhibitions. Many of the exhibits in the permanent collection are worth seeing. The cafe is a perfect setting in which to enjoy a reverside glass of wine on a summer evening.

I went in because I had a Linz City card, otherwise I don't think the 8€ admissions fee is necessarily worth it. The exhibit is relatively small, but there are some interesting works on display, and the building itself is cool, but I wouldn't call it a must do unless you are passionate about modern art. It's no MOMA or... More

I really appreciated the quality of the architectural intervention. if you are interested in a calibrated and significant contemporary architectural work you shouldn't miss this. nice collection inside, worth a visit. the entry fee is levelled with the european admission prices: quite high, honestly.

The museum building is interesting glass covered and worth seeing. I had chance to have dinner in the restaurant which is modern and offers nice fair priced meals.
