A lovely building and a great location. Lots of activity areas if you want to try your hand a watercolour. A really interesting gallery to inspire you showing a wide range of approaches to watercolour.

So glad to hear that you enjoyed our museum as well as our workshop areas! One of our missions is to show a broad spectrum of watercolour techniques and expressions, and I'm glad to hear that you found the exhibitions inspiring. Welcome back!

Thank you for your review Guillaume! Exhibitions do vary a lot since we´re an contemporary art museum, but I'm glad that you recommend Vatten Restaurant & Café! Be sure to let us know if there´s anything the museum can improve for our visitors.

We saw the Disney exhibition here, we were amazed by the exhibition itself but also by the building and location! Make sure to try the restaurant/cafe when you there and watch view of the bare rocks and the ocean right outside the big windows!More

Nice location on the sea. I can highly recommend the Disney exhibtion going on right now, otherwise you need to be highly interested into contemporary painting to enjoy the museum. Nice online guide to exhibition, nice staff.

It a nicely designed little museum with varying exhibitions, not only watercolour but mainly watercolour. The restaurant at the museum serves high quality food and is well worth a visit.
