The exhibitions are sometimes definitely worth checking out and I do recommend using the free entry on Fridays! This is quite traditional art museum / art gallery but the location is amazing and it is worth checking out if you are interested in art :)

The Museum was very interesting especially the rebuilt apartment . I really liked the paintings. It is not a huge Museum but we spent almost 1,5 h there. The staff was very nice.

Well, contemporary art, as always, does not fail to surprise, shock or make you very confused. Nice displays, quick, small and pretty exhibitions.
