Permanent contemporary collection was great although I do agree with the other review. The staff literally followed you around when you entered a room. An uncomfortable experience. Morandi's exhibition was excellent as was the photographer Catherine Wagner's In Situ. The cafe was an unexpected surprise. Really chilled with great staff and cool jazz. The pork rolls and vegetarian pompette on... More

What a terrible experience, there is no excuse whether your employed or a volunteer to be so miserable. Every room we walked through the welcome was a po faced member of staff looking at us like we about to steal something. To be honest I was not that impressed by the art and there was no help from the staff... More

I love abstract art and MAMbo has a nice (if somewhat small) collection. Definitely worth the visit.

Mambo offered a nice exhibit with a lot of pleasant surprises. Even when i thought I'm unimpressed with Morandi's work, i was amazed by his graphics and the sculpture in the last room produced a vocal wow-effect (but it's a secret :) ) I was utterly astonished by the Jonas Burgert exhibit which I visited twice, it was so good....

We accidentally bought the wrong ticket and saw the permenant one whereas the temporary one looked more interesting! The building itself is really nice and the cafe inside is wonderful, we had mini burgers and the staff in the bar/restaurant were lovely.

I was not into the current exhibition, which changes and may be very interesting next time. I only went to see the permanent exhibition. The museum part on the firdt floor was interesting (there's a second museum within the museum on the second floor which is included in the price and is more or less modern and older, which I...

We went to see the Morandi collection and were also treated to a special exhibit of Jonas Burgert's work (it ends on April 17th). The Morandi collection is fantastic. In our view he in one of the world's (not just Italy or Bologna) greatest modern artists. We like his early work, but the entire collection is beautifully laid out. If... More

A 15 minute walk from the main square. They have a permanent and also a temporary exhibition. You pay either 6 euros for the permanent exhibition or 10 euros to visit both. It's a great rainy day activity or if you've run or if things go do in the city. Recommended

We were running out of things we wanted to see in Bologna; but we decided to take in MAMbo, the Museum of Modern Art di Bologna. The ground floor was devoted to a temporary exhibit of the work of a contemporary German painter, Jonas Burgert. Based on what we could see from the foyer, his work looked strong and colorful,...

I enjoyed all day yesterday walking the streets of Bologna and visiting every church we saw. Where did yesterday go? This is our 5th day of 8 days doing Bologna. Today we decided on MAMbo (€4 each for seniors). We do make it our mission to visit every modern museum in every major city to enjoy the best modern artists... More
