1) Strange museum — almost no visitors on a week day, building is quite big, but exhibitions are tiny. Lot of empty space without people. 2) Closed on mondays. 3) Free admission for permanent exhibition. 4) Children' museum.

when we arrived, all the exibhits other than the "statue garden" were closed, so we went to look at the statues. Let's just say we soon found our way out of there.

We had read that this was quite a good shelter from the rain, otherwise not a key sight, however, it was disappointing. When we walked in, we were told that they were setting up their next exhibition so I thought that we would just see...More

Well designed, airy, spacious. Take your time to explore the exhibits, indoors and outdoors. Lots of seating made available on every floor. The gift shop is a disappointment though. Sells more touristy bric a brac with highly inflated prices vs souvenirs of the artwork exhibits...More

Excellent museum, mostly with modern and contemporary art from local artists. Also hosts some temporary exhibitions by some foreign artists. Nice and modern building. It is free entrance. Not all information is in English.
