The select of art work is amazing I loved the pop art section and Picasso work they have is substantial. It’s a must visit and for €13 euro entrance fee you can’t go wrong.

With famous works from Picasso, Dali and Warhol this modern art gallery does not disappoint. The scale of the museum is hard to judge from outside, but there four floors full of interesting exhibitions.

There is plenty of great art to be seen in this museum: a large collection of Andy Warhol & Picasso just to name a few. If you are interested in art, it would be a shame to miss out on this wonderful museum.

Only downside is the lay-out: despite serious effort somehow I still managed to miss rooms apparently. This is the downside f many museums, somehow. All in all, well worth it, including the temporary exhibitions

This is the 3rd largest picasso exhibit in the world and it's impressive. This little museum isn't huge but has a really nice collection of modern and abstract art. We were quite happy at the artwork collection and would definitely go back again. Should take...More
