I will visit modern art museum wherever I travel. This one is small and modest still within an impressive building. Takes a short visit.

If you do not appreciate contemporary art then don’t waste your time at this museum. The only thing I found of interest was the building.

We visited while the excellent Amateur Architecture exhibition was on. Beyond the temporary exhibition the building itself is worth a look. We spent a couple of hours across the three exhibition levels. Art lovers will also enjoy the bookshop at the entrance.

As many have said previously the building itself is beautiful. Also like others I was about to leave disappointed, but the visit was saved by the Amateur Architects (Wang Shu & Lu Wenyu) - their exhibition was entirely worth the entrance fee.

As we all know art is subjective and the art on display wasn't to my taste but there wasn't much of it so the venue seemed empty. That said, the building is beautiful and it's only 7euros each to get in. If I was scoring...More
