The select of art work is amazing I loved the pop art section and Picasso work they have is substantial. It’s a must visit and for €13 euro entrance fee you can’t go wrong.

With famous works from Picasso, Dali and Warhol this modern art gallery does not disappoint. The scale of the museum is hard to judge from outside, but there four floors full of interesting exhibitions.

There is plenty of great art to be seen in this museum: a large collection of Andy Warhol & Picasso just to name a few. If you are interested in art, it would be a shame to miss out on this wonderful museum.
