If you're lucky enough, it's worth the wait to wait in a long line during a Thursday night along the harbor, where there is free admission and the museum is lit with a DJ and music performances outside and at the restaurant! It makes for plenty to do for all types of families and folks.

I completely agree that the architecture is the highly of this museum! I spent just as much time admiring the building inside and outside as I did with all the exhibits. The sculpture rooftop is open and spacious. I had a great time, the museum was bumpin! Go and support the arts!

This is a converted Grain Mill ,The architecture is outstanding & well worth the visit .We were disappointed by the African art felt that there are far better examples on view elsewhere

It is well worth a visit. Although I am a bit of a Philistine when it comes to art, I found the art on display to be very impressive.
For me the structure of the gallery which was originally an old grain silo was, for me, the highlight. A lot of the machinery and equipment is still in place and the large open atriam was "mind blowing"..
I will go back again just to marvel at the structures in the area.

I was stunned by this museum. It’s one of the best modern galleries I’ve been to anywhere (including some of the best in Europe). It was surprising, captivating, and really unique, with a huge variety of exhibits. The building is also stunning. I really highly recommend going here!

The architecture for this building is quite incredible. Its almost worth it just visiting for that alone. The artwork us fascinating and a good introduction to the continent.
