“A work of art in itself”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

The permanent collection is thin, but we hit a great Schiele exhibition. The museum has to be seen and strolled, inside and out.

“Incredible Building and Lunch”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

The wonderful upon first viewing this spectacularly unusual building is worth the trip. It's just an amazing piece of architecture. We loved the outside sculptures, but the exhibits inside left us scratching our heads. What is worth it, is the fantastic Michilin starred restaurant. Eat lunch, enjoy the outside and sculpture, then go to the other art museum down the block for inside!

“Watching from outside more than enough”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

The building itself is very particular and really beautiful.But to wait few hours in the queue,pay money for the ticket and go inside for watching nothing-unessesery...Time we have been there uppest floor was completely closed,and in the rest-almost nothing interesting.. I felt we waist the time.

“Museum”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

The building is fantastic, you keep seeing something more every where you look. The exhibits of toy ray guns and kitchen aids were really stupid
