  • Contemporary museum with beautiful and contemporary artworks. You don't pay on Saturdays. Also beautiful the very modern structure and the environment around with guys doing skateboarding. To see as something characteristic.

  • This place is really great, inside and out. It’s got all things amazing art to look at on the inside, and incredible skateboarders to watch outside once you’re done visiting. It’s good coming in earlier in the morning to get more quiet time. Perfect place to visit on a sunny day!! :)
  • This museum is an absolute must for people who enjoy arts! On Saturdays between 4pm - 8pm it's free admission! The museum exhibits so much incredible works. It has 3 levels and all of them tell their own story. Tip: take a good amount of time out of your day to explore the works, because there are so many of them! :)
