  • Amazing modern art. Would recommend. Plenty of thought provoking artworks. The interior of the museum (designed by famed architect Hadid) is an art work in of itself with its winding staircases that appear to float throughout the building.
  • I expected more from this place. I liked only the ground floor. 12 euro is defenitely too much for this museum but you can go after 17:30 and the ticket is reduced to 5 euro. I liked the idea of recycling tickets
