“Small but very nice museum with collection suitable for kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

The museum of the Image has various kinds of piece of arts except paints and sculture: mainly focusing on videos with some drawings, book covers or tapestries.
There is a permanent collection and some temporal exhibition. Check their website for that.
Instead of spending 1 or 2 hours as previously indicated, we nearly spent 3 hours with our son below 4 years of age.
Unfortunately, the museum is quite expensive and the kids pay full price from 3 years old.
Parking in the street in front or bigger parking at the back (2 hours max).
Convenient free cloakroom for clothes, bags or suitcases. Good shop/library.

“Interesting but probably not for everybody’s taste”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

This Museum of the Image or MOTI is close to the old center of town and housed in a modern building.

The different exhibitions over the years were of mixed quality. Sometimes superb, another time you wonder “this is it?” The exhibitions may range from graphics to photography and computer art to large video walls. Sometimes dull, sometimes inspiring, funny, etc.

Check the website of the museum before you go.

There is a small restaurant for some drinks and snacks and a nice museum shop that you can also reach via a separate entrance from the street.

“interactive interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

A good way to pass 1-2 hours learning more about the reasons behind visual tricks (trompes l'oeil) and the science of the image

“Not for everyone, but we liked it alot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

This is a museum dedicated to design. It has English translations for most of the information. It starts with The early 20 century and the posters. Then industrial design and advertising and then through to today. Very interesting with lots of of examples. The lower level has a video area that showed one minute videos. One of these was graphic and may not be good for children. The upper level is the touring exhibit. This was about advertising, subliminal messaging and optical illusions. The exhibit was in "sneek preview" mode. It was fun and informative.

We recommend it if you like design or are just interested in it but not an artist.
