Amazing structure. Only had 1 exhibition in upper gallery (downstairs main space empty- Jan 2019). Free entry and worth checking building out if your going past

It is very unusual place with very specific architecture, which create unusual atmosphere inside. It is hard to imagine better place for art exhibition.

The access to the museum is really easy, and ramps help even phisically challenged people to move around. public bathrooms are clean and neat, and air conditioning is never too cold in there. Not to mention that despite the great exhibitions, the museum is an...More

It's free and most likely on your way already... but if not, simply don't bother. The building has a very nice, modern design from the outside, but really nothing to expect in it.. There is a very nice tarasse on the side of the building......More

They have utilized technology to create art. The human interaction was great. A must visit for every age group.
