Overview

One of the most romatic modern art museums in Europe- the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum- is located less than 20 km south of Bratislava. It was founded by the Dutch collector and patron of the arts Gerard Meulensteen and the Slovak gallerist Vincent Polakovič. Since its opening in 2000, the museum has arranged numerous exhibitions of leading figures of the Slovak, European and world art scene, including Karel Appel, Sam Francis, Miroslav Cipár, Markus Prachensky, Ilona Keserü Ilona, Rudolf Sikora, Martín Chirino, Vladimír Popovič and other artists. The museum has attracted thousands of Slovak and foreign visitors as well as royal visits and leading political, social and above all cultural figures. Its unique location bordering on three countries, and sensitive integration with the surrounding nature and the River Danube provide visitors extraordinary views of exhibited artworks and of the flora and fauna unique to the peninsula of art in every season of the year. The adjoining sculpture park features the Works of a number of artists, among them El Lissitzky, Magdalena Abakanowicz, Jim Dine, Hans van de Bovenkamp, Jozef Jankovič, Arman, Jean- Claude Farhi, Vladimír Kompánek and Rudolf Uher. A magnificent view of Bratislava and the mighty Danube offer unforgettable experiences at sunset. After the completion of the extension, supported by the Government of the Slovak Republic, the museum is a new symbol of modern Bratislava, recommended by prestigious world guide books and social networking websites. See you by the River Danube, friends!

A fantastic Danube river trip takes you from Bratislava to the Art Museum (approx. 2 hours and 14/18 Euros). The outdoor space and gardens are delightful for eating your own picnic and just enjoying the sunny weather (we were perhaps lucky but it was May!)....More

Quite an interesting gallery and enhanced by the location on the Danube. Discovered an interesting artist who was totally new to me, so it's worth going on the 35 minute no 90 bus journey. If you're getting the 90 from Move SND get tickets beforehand...More

This was really the highlight of our weekend visit to Bratislava. The museum is located on a small island on Danube river, a 30 minutes bus ride from Bratislava (bus 90 runs every hour from "Panorama City"). Lovers of modern art will greatly appreciate it....More

Uber ride was long and about 20 eur, but was worth it. Modern art in a great location and good staff as well. Informative and interesting. Little out of town, but worth the visit.
