I am so glad I made time for the interactive Cherry Blossom exhibit while I was in town. It was so fun to enjoy the spaces for a short time before dinner. Well done on all accounts.

Artechouse is a small art-meets-technology museum that shows computer-based art installations that change every two months or so. It is extremely child-friendly. There are many areas of the exhibit that children can interact with and find fascinating. On the day that I visited, there were...More

WOW! Digital media that infuses augmented reality and motion from you the art admirer. As soon as you set foot into the 30'+ high exhibit you will instantly be amazed at how beautiful it is. Totally immersed in three full floor to ceiling height walls...More

The Parallel Universe exhibit was different from any other art exhibit I have experienced. Enjoyed the big round beanbag chairs from which you can get lost in the art swirling around you. The sound was quite loud (almost like being in a futuristic dance club)....More

I have been eager to visit ARTECHOUSE for some time now, but I was quite disappointed in the end result. The coat-check was unmonitored for one thing, making the experience seemingly more uncomfortable due to the warm temperatures in the building and no trust-worthy setting...More

Artechouse was quite tricky to locate, it was only by chance I found it! I thought the space was excellent and the staff were great; very articulate and engaging! I enjoyed the visuals and sounds of the exhibition to an extent. I found it, at...More

I think for this museum it’s important to know what you’re getting into. We went to Dinner beforehand at the pizza place next door, and then made our way to the exhibit. It’s a little pricey, but the champagne really does make the experience a...More

There are different experiences at Arethouse. It is an interesting concept. It is something you move in and about instead of watch. The Nutcracker required a download on our phones. My friend hadn't enough battery, but the real problem was he paid for data and...More

Your ticket of about $15 (for an adult evening purchase) buys you the exclusivity of attending this unique art space. The experience differs greatly based on the exhibit, but the Nutcracker display brings out your inner child. The museum features 2 larger interactive spaces, and...More
