Glow visit

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!

I was really surprised (positively) with the free admission for students on Thursday night! At that day was really quite, you could enjoy being there were much on your own. Enjoyable bar, to have a drink after the tour

Quick tour, interesting works. Yves Klein piece is memorable. Enjoyed the walk through even though I'm really not a modern art fan.

Although the Van Abbe Museum is part of my life (I was born in Eindhoven and went to a school close to this museum) it is not my taste. I prefer the more traditional arts.

It was simply not my type of museum so i did not enjoy it much except for Pablo Picasso's paintings. I went there to kill time as it was raining hard and it was not possible to spend time outside.

The different levels of the museum of are a little confusing-but you can ask for help from the very friendly docents. The architecture and landscaping of the museum are also super cool-it feels like it is floating in a river.
