  • I had read in advance about this Museum, and saw all the conflicting opinions. But I knew exactly what I personally there food. It is the original canvas Vincent van Gogh "starry night". I had a dream to see. In a building of six floors, the main art gallery on the fifth. Van Gogh was beautiful! But to my surprise there were exhibited and other greatest canvases! Monet! Picasso! Matisse! Klimt! And many others! It was perfect) in addition to the paintings in the Museum, many different locations, but to me they were not very interesting

  • If you like modern art you can't miss it! It's worth the visit just to see the Van Gogh starry night at a distance really close! Another treat ... If you go on Friday afternoon, from 16:00 to 20:00, the Museum is free ... certainly don't expect to be alone but this opportunity allows, if maybe you're not modern art enthusiasts and don't want to pay for something you don't attracts wildly, to stop in one of the most important museums in the world!

  • My daughter made me go. Loved it. We had a great time. Some fantastic art (maybe not the peanuts one though). Had a coffee on the restaurant with the balcony while we planned our visit - loved the atmosphere. Some lady even came over and asked me was I famous.
  • Beautiful collection of Modern Art. On a rainy summer day, it was a bit too crowded to my liking but still worth the visit. Quite a few pieces of Picasso and contemporaries. Superb! Free audio tour available in quite a few languages. Don't forget to take one of these. It definitely adds to the experience. Some of the paintings had audio items for kids as well. I haven't seen many kids around but I have checked one or two stories for kids. Great aid to introduce them to art. You can easily spend a full day but there is an audio tour of about an hour to just take in the highlights as well. Kids up till 16 years of age have free entrance.
