  • Good collection for contemporary art lovers and nice building both from inside and outside. It was closing at 10 PM, so I could walk around almost every floor. Outside of the building there are some shows at evening: worth watching!!! One of the most entertaining and impressive shows I've ever seen (I have not seen much ;-))) The group "3 Warriors" will always be in my heart.
  • Fantastic art gallery in a really cool building with amazing views over the city from the top floor. The modern art collection is great, but the contemporary galleries is where it really shines. I loved the Dada exhibition. Nice cafe which could do with a few more vegan options, but the coffee was great. Well worth a visit.
