Overview

One of the most romatic modern art museums in Europe- the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum- is located less than 20 km south of Bratislava. It was founded by the Dutch collector and patron of the arts Gerard Meulensteen and the Slovak gallerist Vincent Polakovič. Since its opening in 2000, the museum has arranged numerous exhibitions of leading figures of the Slovak, European and world art scene, including Karel Appel, Sam Francis, Miroslav Cipár, Markus Prachensky, Ilona Keserü Ilona, Rudolf Sikora, Martín Chirino, Vladimír Popovič and other artists. The museum has attracted thousands of Slovak and foreign visitors as well as royal visits and leading political, social and above all cultural figures. Its unique location bordering on three countries, and sensitive integration with the surrounding nature and the River Danube provide visitors extraordinary views of exhibited artworks and of the flora and fauna unique to the peninsula of art in every season of the year. The adjoining sculpture park features the Works of a number of artists, among them El Lissitzky, Magdalena Abakanowicz, Jim Dine, Hans van de Bovenkamp, Jozef Jankovič, Arman, Jean- Claude Farhi, Vladimír Kompánek and Rudolf Uher. A magnificent view of Bratislava and the mighty Danube offer unforgettable experiences at sunset. After the completion of the extension, supported by the Government of the Slovak Republic, the museum is a new symbol of modern Bratislava, recommended by prestigious world guide books and social networking websites. See you by the River Danube, friends!

This is a truly world-class art gallery. The artificial island created in the middle of the Danube makes for an amazing setting for some extraordinary art - most of it by contemporary Slovak or other central European artists. The exhibits are spread through a series...More

If you like approachable modern art this will likely hit the spot, there was barely a single exhibit that I didn't like. At a push this can be done in an hour otherwise make it two as the bus service runs hourly. Location is stunning....More

Very nice modern gallery with many pictures, exhibitions are regularly updated. Situated near Čunovo dam, so the surrounding is also worth seeing. It is though little bit far from Bratislava centre, but still you can use public transport to get there. Coffee with good cakes...More
