Some galleries try to be all things to all people but this one has got it right - the variety of subject, the size, the well organised displays and a good cup of coffee next door! The Morani exhibition was being shown and that in...More

It can be so boring to visit museums that try to collect what every other museum in the world has. MAMbo takes the risk of making its own choices, showing mostly Italian artists. Many more hits than misses - and the attached Giorgio Morandi museum...More

This is a small, but decent museum for contemporary art. The Morandi collecti is currently there and worth a visit.

If you are enrolled at an university in Europe, you can enter the museum for free. The permanent collection is very fascinating. Also check out Ex Forno - the coffee right next to the museum.

I don't know what happened between 20 and 24 April when two reviewers had bad experiences in MAMbo. Ours was totally different. The staff could not have been more helpful. Almost took us by the hand to make sure we didn't miss Museo Morandi. Hard...More

Permanent contemporary collection was great although I do agree with the other review. The staff literally followed you around when you entered a room. An uncomfortable experience. Morandi's exhibition was excellent as was the photographer Catherine Wagner's In Situ. The cafe was an unexpected surprise....More
