Building and it's shape is basically an exhibition itself, but exhibition inside fall short of what I've seen in other modern art museums. It's incredibly small, and exhibitions when I visited were not really filling up the space either. Still, it's quite a memorable visit,...More

The MAAT is wonderful and worth a visit. Not only has the building been integrated beautifully into the city but it also creates beautiful public space. The exhibits that were there in January were thought provoking and inspiring. I won’t forget this visit!!
