The mass of factory buildings restored and filled with light, sounds, shapes, number of places to sit and admire the art and space itself made made this experience so enjoyable. Allow two hours or more to explore the variety of modern art. There is also...More

Big installations, immersive experiences, a giant reclaimed industrial building. You can easily get lost all day here.

We really enjoyed exploring the connected factory buildings and discovering artworks along the way. The cafe was nice, and the boiler room is worth a climb up to the top!

A massive former factory site that has been repurposed as a museum of modern and contemporary art. The Turrell Installations alone are more than worth the price of admission, but there is so much more including multiple dining venues and magnificent spaces.
