  • Lovely building full of nothing. We usually enjoy modern art as it challenges you and makes you think. This was second rate rubbish. This was made worse when I began to walk round a 3 dimensional...

  • We paid 16 euros to go into this museum and view a number of very large rooms, almost entirely empty apart from a small twisted pole in the middle of the floor. Two or three uniformed custodians...

  • Great building and pretty library, nevertheless, the museum disappointed us. Super SMALL exhibition and quite awful. We enjoy contemporary art museums but this one is not worth the money. Nice admission staff, but the one at the exhibition were kind of annoying.
  • I'm probably not well qualified to judge this gallery, as I'm not a big fan of contemporary art, however I am always open to giving it a try. In my opinion, such as it is, this was particularly poor. Very few exhibits, many of them completely missed me, in that I could see little artistic quality in them. I think I enjoyed about 5% of the exhibits. I was accompanied by 2 other people, both of whom had a wider appreciation of art than myself, and they also found it particularly poor. Frankly, a waste of €8.
