My daughter and I went here to see the futurist exhibition. We were very impressed by the actual museum itself because of its unique design. The exhibition was very in depth and had all kinds of interesting artists that I had never heard of before. I was very impressed with the quality of the exhibition. One thing my daughter and... More

The present visiting exhibition of Futurism is very comprehensive and detailed. Although some of my favourite paintings were not there, it covers the whole development of Futurism and is very thorough. I learnt a lot on my visit and also appreciate the web site with videos of the collection. It is a great and iconic building always worth re-visiting when... More

Rushed to get here from Lower Manhattan after various unfortunate delays and were refused entry even though was just after 5:20. Fair enough - although it didn't give a last entry time in our guide books. However, we were dealt with in a very obstructive manner by the guys on the door despite our being courteous. We were very disappointed... More

I was so impressed with this building- the spirals make it easy to get around and view all the stunning art. The main exhibition was Italian Futurism which was fascinating and something that I was able to gain a lot of knowledge on. I loved the fact that they are all in chronological order. There were also little separate exhibitions... More

This Frank Loyd Wright designed building makes it easy and accessible to view art. It's probably the most beautifully designed gallery that I've ever been to. In June there was a great exhibit on Italian Futurism and the flow of the building made everything so easy to see. Highly recommend going, if nothing else but for the architecture!

We arrived after lunch and didn't wait in a line on a Saturday. Took the elevator to the top floor and meandered our way down. Took the teen there because 1. he could relate since seeing it in the movie: The International and 2. It's been on my bucket list. The teen greatly enjoyed looking over the railing from each... More
