  • Just next to the Dom and Romer (old town hall) plaza, its definetlly a place to visit! Impressive building with unique architectural details. In each floor, you will be surprised by the exposures .  more »
  • The building - offers close by the Romans - architecture; a very special architect from Vienna was charged with the planning and the building is a piece of cake since; There are inside also areas which are extra tailored to works of art, such as Beuys; Normally this exceptional, very modern part exhibitions take place, you should first watch on the Internet

  • This is a good gallery and you can see some amazing work here. But sadly I get a bitter taste from a moment I had with staff. I and my partner went here and we enjoyed the admiring the exhibition. We had 10 minutes before the museum was closing we were in a rushing to see what's left of the exhibition when this woman said we have to go now. We tried to explain that we would be ready to go when we finished which should be like 5 to 7 minutes. The woman would not leave ours alone saying we have to go now. Again I explained we still have time we paid for the tickets we would like to see the rest. At this point, she was being rude say we have to to go don't you understand! She was trying to antagonize ours which at this point started to wind me up I ask to speak to the manager she said there was no manager in today. I was so unhappy the whole experience and this was a year ago I went back again MMK Museum just recently and it reminded me of this bad experience. Just be wary with the staff and if there's 10 minutes left of before they close.
  • The photos look way better and include cool sculptures. I like art museums with more colourful modern art, with sculptures, with interactive exhibits, and with light or mirror type exhibits...stuff that makes it interesting. This was pretty much just full on art on walls, and not even eye catching art on walls. There was one magnetic floor display where you wore magnet shoes, but it barely worked and I could totally pick up my feet. Felt like a waste of 12 euros each for my friend and I. The nice part was the lookout area up some stairs where the building's angles were nice and made for some cool photos, but that was us just trying to make the best of it. I won't come back here.
