beside the interesting museum with lots of famous paintings and different other things to see - it´s also a great combination between old and new building, situated in the city center and directly located at river Dommel....

So far from being unaccessible (most places that try to do conceptual art well fail miserably), this one is spot on and very interesting. You don't need to know a thing about art before you walk in and they don't try to sell it to you - they just present modern art in chronological order. It's very clear and there... More

It is near the center and a large park surrounded by the city. The works are alternated with screening rooms in a complex path of rooms. We also tried a new artificial earthquake simulation experience with the assistance of a very kind crew. free wifi, a gift shop and a nice bar are available

Enjoyed an afternoon amongst the art, dreaming of art I should someday make. Not large, but varied collection.

I had read mixed reviews on this gallery so only alloted 90 mins to spin round the main sights. Big mistake. This place was more extensive than I thought with some excellent exhibits. Lovely building and you are coached round it in good order. There seems to be two distinct halves so make sure you see both. I imagine it... More

I didn't liked. And I'm used to visit modern art museums, but this is not one that worth to visit. Most of the artist are not very known and the paintings of famous artists are from Serie B class. The museum was full of noisy students, that prefer to take selfies than look at paintings. If you want a real... More

We visited for glow, the installations for glow were very cool but the main collection was average. Wouldn't pay €12 for the main collection.

A great building giving an impression of floating on the near river! Personally I am a big fan of modern art so, that was my case-museum of the city. Good collection to be seen. Disconvinience : it's a bit confusing, passing by a collection to an other but, staff was smiling and more than helpful!
