One of the most romatic modern art museums in Europe- the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum- is located less than 20 km south of Bratislava. It was founded by the Dutch collector and patron of the arts Gerard Meulensteen and the Slovak gallerist Vincent Polakovič. Since its opening in 2000, the museum has arranged numerous exhibitions of leading figures of the Slovak, European and world art scene, including Karel Appel, Sam Francis, Miroslav Cipár, Markus Prachensky, Ilona Keserü Ilona, Rudolf Sikora, Martín Chirino, Vladimír Popovič and other artists. The museum has attracted thousands of Slovak and foreign visitors as well as royal visits and leading political, social and above all cultural figures. Its unique location bordering on three countries, and sensitive integration with the surrounding nature and the River Danube provide visitors extraordinary views of exhibited artworks and of the flora and fauna unique to the peninsula of art in every season of the year. The adjoining sculpture park features the Works of a number of artists, among them El Lissitzky, Magdalena Abakanowicz, Jim Dine, Hans van de Bovenkamp, Jozef Jankovič, Arman, Jean- Claude Farhi, Vladimír Kompánek and Rudolf Uher. A magnificent view of Bratislava and the mighty Danube offer unforgettable experiences at sunset. After the completion of the extension, supported by the Government of the Slovak Republic, the museum is a new symbol of modern Bratislava, recommended by prestigious world guide books and social networking websites. See you by the River Danube, friends!

Well worth the effort it took to get there! Ordered a taxi there and back from the hotel – was a little expensive (25 euros each way) but well worth it as it as too hot for getting a bus. Very much like the Louisiana in Denmark; an art gallery and outdoor space with sculptures on a river setting. Miro... More

Hi, you can visit this museum by taking a boat from city center, or by bike (there is a bike route heading directly there). Very nice place, they have this little coffee shop inside, that serves perfect coffee, service is top. Very interesting pieces of art to be seen there, and outside has catchy statues. you also can sunbath there... More

Truly a breath of fresh air. We took a very short detour enroute from Bratislava/Solvakia to Budapest/Hungary. But well worth it – only about 15-20 km south of Budapest. The parting is free. The 10€ entrance an absolute bargain. Where to start; just so much to see inside and outside including some really talented East European artists. Special exhibition of... More

This museum is a great addition to Bratislava's art scene. The location is not easily accessible if you don't have a car (I'm told there's a boat service but haven't tried it) but it's very nicely done and inside the museum it appears as if you were floating on the Danube. The space is well arranged (inside and outside!) and... More

This is a great museum, with nice permament collection as well as Juan Miro exhibition that started july 2. Great location also. You can take a bus 90 from new theater (SND), but it is quite tedious. We did not take the boat this time, but will next, definately preferred option.

Having hired a couple of speed boats to race up and down the Danube, we took a few hours to visit the gallery to see the art and have a quick drink. It was perfect for both!

This is a great modern museum with both paintings and sculptures. They also have a great placement by the water with a sculpture garden and a café. If you like to go to museums it is definitely worth the travel outside the city center.
