MODA is so different from your standard art museum fare. If you are only interested in the art of Picasso or Monet, this isn’t your cup of tea, but if you find beauty in the objects around you and want to learn more about how...More

Visited to see the espresso exhibit - lots of fun facts and machine design pieces. They give you a free Illy espresso, which is cool. Nice gift shop, too.

This is an extremely small museum. We went during the espresso exhibit. It was impressive and thorough. There was also a “post-secret” type of exhibit where people could write their secrets inside a book and readers could reply to their secrets on post cards. The...More

We were so inspired by this Museum. We’ll be creating Welcome Blankets for immigrants as part of one of the exhibits. This Museum should be a must-see.

Small museum set in a modern building with interesting installations like the 3D house. I did not visit the museum per say as I was invited to lunch at the adjoining restaurant. There were several exhibitions ongoing and definitely worth visiting, depending on what interests...More

Tiny place with nothing to impress. You could spend 5 to 10 minutes here with admission and parking fee but the point is it wasted your time to travel here. I found this place from TripAdvisor and planned a trip but it was disappointed.

MODA is tiny, and it doesn't have a permanent collection. But they often have really great exhibits. So - yes, it's definitely worth a visit, but only if you're interested in the exhibit that's there! When I visited, they had an exhibit called Designing Playful...More

This one-floor, one-exhibit museum is an underrated gem. We attended the recent exhibit with the theme of text use in art. Although only about 40 pieces or so, each piece was so different and intriguing that it was very engaging and thought-provoking. Furthermore, the pieces...More

I don't know if all the exhibits we saw were temporary, I suspect they were. They all had me totally interested. It's not a very big museum, but what they had was great and very well presented. Very creative. Nice choice if you don't want...More
