We were very disappointed - should have read some reviews before going. There were 2 exhibitions on, neither of which of interest to us and there isn't a core "interesting" bit with more general interest stuff. When you think about what you can see in...More

The museum is a real nice one. I can only recommend for foto lovers to come here. Check exhibitions before. The Cafe is also to recommend. It has a nice terrace. The Belgian Selleslags exhibition is really worth to go for.

The museum was undergoing some renovation works when I got there, so there was only one exhibition available. It was an interesting historical exhibition, well designed and presented. I regret that I couldn't see the entire museum.More

This is one of those museums where you have to check the ongoing exibition first, before deciding to go there or not. The 3 exibitions we saw each occupied one floor of the museum. In my opinion they could have done more with it

always at least one good show. good art house movies too. Front of house staff rather hostile and uneducated, but that should not stop you.

We visited on a whim, at the time of the Saul Leiter expo and the Rik & Herman Selleslags expo. Both were constructed pretty well in our opinion: there was a clear narrative in both expositions, and the evolution of the artists' works was very...More

The FOMU was a very cool experience and a great option to go to as an individual or with friends. During my visit not all of the exhibits were open due to the transitioning to a new exhibit, so that was a bit disappointing, but...More
