I really like the modernistic look with it's huge primary color roofs and separated areas/pavilions. Strong, bold, architectural lines and color contrasts with raw concrete.

There are 2 reasons to visit: to see the building itself and the exhibits inside. It's quite an interesting and colorful Frank Gehry construction. The exhibits inside are rather limited. They're in the process of creating several exhibits.More
