For those interested in modern art this is well worth the walk to get there. Entry is free with the Bologna Welcome Card. Incorporated in the building is the Morandi Museum so it is good value for money.

Made a point of visiting here when the David Bowie retrospective exhibition was on. A short distance from the railway station this was a great building/location for such. Walking from the centre of town to reach it enabled me to discover a wide variety of shops and bars. Exhibition was fantastic.

I was really surprised how good this museum was. They have an excellent selection of Transavantgarde and Arte Povera works. The Giorgio Morandi's are great to see his development and rigour as an artist. I was there for an hour but could easily stayed much longer. Excellent bar/cafe and shop too.

Doesn't take long to see it all and the Morandi works are interesting. Good for a relaxing hour or so.

Enjoyed the refreshing art but not loud vocal requests not to take pictures. Apparently you can ask for a ticket to take pictures at reception. This is free. Also attendants followed us. Literally, pace by pace.

A good gallery with plenty of varied exhibits. There is also a lovely outside area (although a few too many persons with bottles lurking). A good cafe and shop too.

We went for the exhibition and expected it to be busy and it was. Queue for tickets with exact entry time took as long as over an hour just to get to the front.. Luckily. for us, at the last possible time slot of 22.00, they extended the opening hours by 30mins. The staff were actually all right, despite the... More

We popped in and booked tickets for the following afternoon - and then had excellent coffees in their cafe. It is worth pre-booking tickets to avoid any possible queuing or disappointment. We like Bowie, although are not fanatical fans, so were unsure how much we would like this exhibition. We needn't have worried, and spent 2 enjoyable hours here. It... More

Enjoyed the museum so much we took a friend there a week later for a second visit and still didn't go into the Bowie special exhibition either, but that's the advantage of being older caught him first time around. The video installations had changed since our first visit so a bit different too. Makes a difference to what the gallery... More

Seeking refuge from the rain, we spent an interesting couple of hours here on a Saturday afternoon. It was very quiet in the permanent collection - but there were hundreds of people there for the Bowie exhibition - and easy to take your time walking around and enjoying all the art on display.
