  • The best part about this museum is the rooftop terrace. That’s what makes it worth visiting. Apart from that, the museum lacks some care taking for all the little things: English description texts are blurry and contain typos. Direction signs seem improvised. The interior makes a shabby impression. Most art pieces seem to revolve around the confused artsy struggle: “art to study what is art and what is not”. So if you’re here on a sunny day, enjoy the rooftops terrace. Other than that, a walk in the neighbourhood might be more enjoyable
  • Eclectic art museum with a range of modern art. Some fascinating collections of very different styles and media. Nice building. The art on the roof was a little frightening as it is quite exposed and some of the elevated platforms felt a bit flimsy, not advisable for those scared of heights or small children.
