So we bit the bullet and purchased the special deal you can get to visit the two MACRO sites. This review is for the Via Nizza site which costs 12.50 euros alone, so it is worth getting the extra ticket for 14.50.
I don't know what it is about major museum staff and what beats them down, but can a smile or two hurt that much? This is not just an Italy specific thing either by the way, we need to get on the backs of these institutions and get some good old friendly service back into the industry!
Back to MACRO, the exhibitions I saw were presented beautifully but the building itself is just a bit too clever for it's own good. There are doors that let you out but not back in and pathways that end abruptly. If you have time and want to 'investigate' the space, you can easily just wander this kooky place between shows. Despite the pretentious 'artspeak' info that plagues all contemporary art realms, the artwork and installations spoke for themselves and were lots of fun and full of humour and thoughtfulness: Jamie Durham's show was especially hilarious! I enjoyed visiting this place and look forward to checking out the second site, my gripe is the attitude and poor communication skills of staff and the sloppy layout between good exhibitions.
